In today's environment, trust and confidence must be earned, with stakeholders demanding more and better information to gauge which companies pass muster. They want reporting to be more transparent, insightful and frank, with a more forward-looking perspective. They want a deeper understanding of how companies make their money and how sustainable that process is.

And with regulators also pushing for greater disclosure, the challenge is to balance compliance and communication.

We help clients by unravelling the complexities of audience needs and regulatory requirements. We invest in understanding - and shaping - the reporting landscape, notably in our comprehensive "How does it stack up?" research, a benchmark of good practice in reporting since 2006.

Our expertise in reporting ensures that our creative work is informed by understanding and insight. Our design is not simply aesthetic; it's there to present a coherent story, simplify the complex, aid understanding and make the information accessible - in both print and online.

This is the key to best-in-class reporting. It's reflected in our clients' success in winning many awards such as PwC's Building Public Trust Awards.

Trust. There's that word again. Of course for us, earning our clients' trust is equally important. With one of the UK's largest and most experienced corporate reporting teams, we're fully equipped to deliver end-to-end service - easing the pressure on our clients.
