Just over 80 agencies, based in countries where FTI’s Strategic Communications arm does not have a direct presence, have been included in the affiliate network, giving it a presence in more than 100 countries in total.

There is an ‘elite tier’ of 14 Gold affiliates, which are endorsed by FTI and able to use some of its branding. They are publicly profiled and contactable through the FTI website.

The rest are Silver affiliates, which don’t have the same advantages but are required to "meet similarly high standards of professional compliance".

All affiliates are required to undergo anti-bribery and anti-corruption training, for example, and will be integrated within FTI’s Strategic Communications teams, globally.

"The firms we’re unveiling today as our Gold affiliates have been valued partners of FTI Strategic Communications for years," said Jon Aarons, senior MD and global head of network development in FTI’s Strategic Communications arm.

"What we’re announcing today will only strengthen these existing professional relationships – while increasing transparency for our clients and providing them access to the regional expertise they need in today’s business environment."

The 14 Gold affiliates are:

  • Simplicity, Chile
  • Communications Office Colic, Laco & Partners, Croatia
  • Rada Research & PR, Egypt
  • Cocomms, Finland
  • V+O Communications, Greece
  • Gelbart-Kahana, Israel
  • Insight Communications, Korea
  • Strateus Group, Morocco
  • Crux Advisers, Norway
  • NBS Communications, Poland
  • Narva, Sweden
  • IRF Communications, Switzerland
  • Image Public Relations, Turkey
  • Istanbul Ekonomi, Turkey

Earlier this week, FTI announced it was rolling out a Geopolitical Intelligence practice amid "unprecedented political risk and instability" facing companies.
