“As the leading online bank in Switzerland, we wanted to completely redesign our annual report. The self-conception of Swissquote should also manifest itself in the reporting with a fresh appearance. Linkgroup advised us purposefully in all phases of the project and did first-class work in terms of content and concept. Despite the geographical distance, our core team was closely managed by Linkgroup’s project leader, and we thus had a single point of contact for all online and print publications. As an agency, Linkgroup has always provided the conceptual and visual ‘brackets’, while always responding to our concerns. This was extremely important to us during the implementation phase and was one of the keys that led to the successful project.”
Focus on investors, financial analysts and the media.
This service package is aimed at listed and non-listed companies that see the value of professional financial and sustainability communications, including communications connected with capital market transactions and IPOs.
If you commission us to manage your project on an integrated basis you benefit from our capabilities as a full-service provider. For each service package we offer the following modules:
- Consulting services
- Conceptual design
- Content creation
- Cross-media production
For listed companies in particular, financial communications in the narrower sense are governed by rules and regulations. But they also have plenty of freedom when it comes to implementation and presenting additional, primarily non-financial, information. The secret is to use this freedom to achieve the greatest impact with your stakeholders. We have the knowledge, experience and implementation capabilities to help you do precisely that.
It’s increasingly important for companies to produce reports meeting the relevant quality and sustainability standards. But they should be designed and produced in such a way that they go beyond the minimum reporting requirements and do more than merely justify the organisation’s activities. We know how to tackle projects of this kind to meet the overarching objectives. This expertise is bundled in our sustainability publishing capabilities.
Integrated reporting is gathering momentum all over the world, but for many Swiss companies it’s still uncharted territory. Producing an integrated report is challenging, with many requirements to be met. Before you embark on a project of this sort, you have to make very sure that your organisation is up to these challenges and has the in-house resources to deliver. We can support you right from this preliminary clarification phase.
Every year Linkgroup produces more than 150 annual reports, online and print, and sustainability reports. Financial reporting is dominated by facts and figures that must be presented with great precision and in clearly defined formats. The process is governed by statutory and regulatory requirements that have to be met in their entirety at all stages of the process. Our structures and workflows are closely geared to these requirements. We guarantee our customers professional execution and absolute confidentiality.
We’re proud to have contributed to Geberit’s first place overall. We’ve been working with the company since its IPO in 1999. Overall we had a part in ten of the top 25 solutions in the Online/Print Design rating. This year we were involved in the report produced by Fundamenta Real Estate, the second biggest climber of the year; last year we had a hand in the Swissquote report that was the biggest climber of that year.
