The Ultimate Fund Admin PR Ranking:

Who Rules the Global Media Landscape? 


Material Impact's PR Pulse Report offers an incisive analysis of the media presence of global fund administrators, ranking them based on a multi-metric system. The metrics include Share of Voice (SoV), Coverage Consistency, Outlet Quality, Brand Interest and International Reach. The study, which covers the period from July 2022 to June 2023, analysed nearly 130 companies, with the top 100 featuring in the final report.

  • Overall Performance: The standard amongst the top one third of firms was very high across all metrics but companies outside the top third demonstrated variable performance. As a whole, firms generally excelled in at least one of the five metrics we looked at but those who performed best were those consistently topping the charts across metrics.


  • Dominant Players: A select few companies, led by Apex, have mastered PR execution, securing extensive media coverage across multiple continents and languages. JP Morgan Securities Services and Crestbridge came second and third in the final rankings, respectively.

  • Top Contenders & Marginal Gains: Several firms are strategically poised for upward mobility with minimal effort. These companies have strong foundational PR and marketing activities but have room for marginal improvements that could significantly alter their rankings.

  • Size vs. Visibility: Larger financial institutions generally underperformed in international media coverage compared to smaller, more focused fund administrators.

  • Outperformers: A subset of companies punched above their weight in terms of geographic reach, outperforming their general rank.
