Investor and financial public relations advice for the technology sector
Tavistock has extensive experience in Technology gained in over 25 years of working with some of the most innovative companies in the UK.
Our knowledge is drawn from a team with diverse backgrounds including former financial analysts, accountants, FTSE 100 in-house operators and science and technology graduates. This gives us the capability to understand complex technologies, applications and target markets and deliver outstanding results for our clients.
We have advised and represented the full range of private and public listed companies, large and small, from established companies to spin outs and startups, operating both in the UK and globally. Working in conjunction with UK innovation and incubation agencies, Tavistock has also designed and managed events for UK Tech investors.
Our advice and execution has often gone beyond financial calendar and reporting support, helping to deliver financial PR and IR campaigns covering IPOs, acquisitions, repositionings and product or service launches.
We have worked with hardware designers and manufacturers in subsectors as varied as semiconductors, consumer electronics, optical displays, detection and scanning. Our clients have also supplied innovative systems to improve the efficiency and safety of industrial processes.
Tavistock also has broad experience in working with companies which develop and offer Software as a Service (SaaS) and software Platforms as a Service (PaaS). Our clients have provided a wide range of solutions from systems which support back-office functions to developers of mobile and smart device apps.
