Exclusive financial advisor to Hamilton Place Strategies and Flag Analytics
KPMG corporate finance LLC acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Hamilton Place Strategies and Flag Analytics
KPMG Corporate Finance LLC is pleased to announce the partnership of Hamilton Place Strategies (“HPS”) and Flag Analytics (“Flag”) with Ballast Research, bringing together data-driven public affairs and reputation management across an increasingly complex policy landscape. This partnership is supported by a majority capital investment by Charlotte, North Carolina private equity firm Falfurrias Capital Partners (“FCP”).
The firms will operate under their existing brands while collaborating and servicing clients in partnership, allowing them to deliver better insights, strategies, and execution for clients across a broad range of issues.
At a time when companies face increased public scrutiny and expectations to demonstrate value to stakeholders, the partnership between HPS, Flag, and Ballast will provide deep insights and integrated solutions to help organizations navigate the business, political, and regulatory complexities they must consider in telling their stories. Although each business will maintain its own independent service offerings, support across the partnering organizations will now include public affairs, media relations, crisis and issue management, research and analysis, political and regulatory risk analysis, global thought leadership, digital strategy, corporate reputation, creative content, and media monitoring and analysis.
"We're thrilled to be growing our business with these partners," said HPS Founding Partner Tony Fratto. "We built a business based on exceptional talent and constant innovation, and it's wonderful to see that approach recognized and supported by the team at FCP. Ballast brings unmatched data and insights to understanding issues and the impact of advocacy on policymaking. We can't wait to partner with them in service of our clients. As we go forward, we'll continue to seek additional partners that enhance our capabilities and expand our reach."
