Emperor, a UK-based employee-owned creative communications agency, and AICL Communications, India’s stakeholder communications consultancy, have announced a strategic partnership. 
 
The alliance aims to support international businesses to connect with their investors, employees, and customers. 
 
With this partnership, Emperor and AICL will leverage their market positions in the UK and India to develop an effective cross-border offer, utilising in-house talent to deliver expert capabilities in corporate communications to businesses across the world.
 
The agencies will offer 360-degree corporate communications services, including ESG (environmental, social and governance) consultancy, annual reporting, investor outreach, employee engagement and brand communications, together with outstanding digital delivery. 
 
Steve Kemp, founder and partner, Emperor, said, “I have watched AICL grow with admiration over the past 18 years to become India’s dominant stakeholder reporting consultancy. During this time we have compared notes on all manner of topics and thematics. Our strategic partnership will provide many opportunities as our world becomes ever flatter, with our clients facing the same communications challenges.”​
Arvind Agrawal, founder and CEO, AICL Communications, said, “I greatly admire Emperor’s growth journey, and value Steve’s counsel. With common values, experience and complementing skills, we are excited about the benefits this partnership will bring our clients and the opportunities it presents for our people. Despite operating in different jurisdictions, we share much common ground, both in what we do and how we operate. India is the fifth largest economy in the world and growing very fast, with a vibrant private and public capital market, rich with opportunities, which we intend to leverage.”
