Copylab, one of the world’s biggest investment writing and communications agencies, has announced the opening of offices in Chicago and New York.
Glasgow-based Copylab supports some of the largest global asset managers. It already has bases in Boston, Edinburgh, Hong Kong, London, Singapore and Vancouver.
Formed in 2005 by Ross Hunter, it has seen a seven-fold increase in annual turnover over the last three years and now employs more 50 staff.
David Skillman and John Clinton will run operations in New York and Chicago respectively, reporting to John D Connolly, head of Copylab North America.
Mr Skillman was previously the founder and portfolio manager at 4P Asset Management, a quantitative, alternative asset incubator fund.
Mr Clinton previously worked in marketing and corporate communications at Nationwide in Columbus, Ohio, supporting the company’s financial business including mutual funds, annuities, life insurance and retirement plans.
Mr Connolly, head of Copylab North America, said: “We are committed to supporting the communications and marketing efforts of asset managers worldwide.
“At a time when the global theme has never been a more imperative mandate for firms in our industry, David and John will help our many clients to expand their reach to new and existing audiences alike with compelling content.
“We know that the addition of a New York and Chicago presence is desirable to our current client base and opens up many new opportunities for us. Strategically we are hugely committed to this expansion as an exceptional fit for our global operations.”
