What Our Clients Say


Marketing Pulse have been an extremely valuable source of research for Liontrust for the past few years. The tracking reports they produce provide a great insight into intermediaries’ awareness, understanding and perception of our advertising, messaging and business and thus help guide our marketing campaigns. This is enhanced by the fact that Haissam and Michael have great experience and knowledge of what has worked and has not worked so well in other groups’ campaigns. Plus they are both great fun to work with.
