Momentum appoints leading PR consultancy
Published: 23 Dec 2015
Following a competitive pitch process, Momentum has brought in leading financial communications consultancy Citigate Dewe Rogerson to support the development of the Group’s UK business. This comes after Momentum’s purchase of the majority stake in its Manchester-based business earlier this summer, and indeed the success of the Group’s SIPP product since its launch in late 2014.
Mark Gaywood, Momentum Group Chairman said: “We are excited to embark on this new partnership with Citigate to help build on our footprint in the UK market as a specialist pensions provider and partner to the financial adviser community. Citigate showed deep industry knowledge and a clear understanding of the opportunities for Momentum Pensions. We’re delighted to be working with them.”
Jonathan Flint, Managing Director of Citigate Dewe Rogerson, said: “Momentum Pensions’ proposition and growth ambitions are very exciting. They have a wealth of expertise and their market-facing culture makes their potential huge.”

They will go that extra mile to find out all about their client, whether it’s the obvious, such as attitude to risk and understanding their retirement ambitions, or the less obvious, such as family background.
