NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Vested, an award-winning global financial communications agency, today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Toronto-based financial PR firm Goldman Communications. As part of the arrangement, which was advised and led by Vested CFO Seth Rosenstein, Goldman Communications will rebrand as Vested Canada and join Vested’s platform of companies.
“It is clearly a new era for financial services public relations and communications, and Vested is absolutely the new-era firm to be partnering with,” said Goldman Communications Founder and CEO Corey Goldman. “With Vested’s incredible team, unparalleled capabilities and strong track record of success both in North America and internationally, they are hands down, the best organization to grow with. The Goldman team and I are beyond thrilled to be joining the Vested family.”
Expanding Vested’s presence in Canada was a natural progression, given the firm’s existing on-the-ground presence and capabilities serving some of North America’s largest financial services firms.
“Goldman and Corey are the perfect partner for us as we continue to broaden our services into Canada,” said Vested COO and co-founder Ishviene Arora. “Because of his existing connections and reputation in the asset management and capital markets space as well as his capabilities in fintech and more, Corey and his team are uniquely positioned to represent Vested in the Canadian market.”
Goldman Communications is Vested’s second deal this year and speaks to the agency’s mission of inorganic growth. In 2018, Vested bought the UK firm Templars PR and launched its proprietary tech platform, Qwoted. 2019, it bought a minority stake in Caliber Corporate Advisers and purchased the business journalism website, Talking Biz News, which is still run by founder Chris Roush, Dean of Communications at Quinnipiac University. Just last month, Vested acquired Scribe, a financial content firm.
“Executing 4 major transactions within an eight-month period demonstrates the aggressive commitment from Vested's leadership to strategic growth,” said Rosenstein. “These business decisions will not only lead to stronger economic results but also help reinforce Vested's infrastructure as a growing global agency.”
Vested is an integrated communications firm that is at the front of the rapidly evolving financial sector. The agency’s approach merges deep financial expertise with creativity and an obsessive commitment to creating value for clients through ideas and action. The agency, which has offices in New York and London, is a founding member of the Global Fintech PR Network and operates an investment group, Vested Ventures.
