The result

Aspectus succeeded in spreading the news far and wide, particularly within the quality UK-facing funds industry media (including HFM Week, Citywire Wealth Management, Funds Europe, Unquote, and Pensions + Investments) but also major mainstream titles (Reuters, The New York Times). Much of the coverage led with very favourable soundbites such as '£135bn giant enters UK fund admin market'.

We are delighted with the fantastic job Aspectus did regarding the Phoenix transaction – they achieved precisely what we wanted in terms of the tone and breadth of media coverage.
