About us


Who We Are

August Consulting is a leading corporate and financial communications consultancy backed by a successful track record of more than 20 years.

Specialising in corporate communications, investor relations, media relations, and issues and reputation management, our clients include foreign and local multinationals, listed companies, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and start-ups in a wide range of industries.

As one of the pioneers in the investor relations arena, we have helped more than 200 companies launch their Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) since 1992, and continue to be a major player in the IPO communications market today. We are also the first investor relations agency in Singapore to work on the listing of a Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC), which was listed on NASDAQ in 2019.

Our industry knowledge goes beyond the Singapore market. Through our in-house expertise and associate networks, we have developed and executed communication strategies in Malaysia, Hong Kong, China, Australia and Indonesia.

We have built a market reputation for service quality through our commitment to client servicing, a firm grasp of corporate and financial matters, and strong media and investors’ ties. As a result, August Consulting has a high client retention rate and low executive turnover in our industry in Singapore.

With digital disruption impacting our business environment, engaging target markets through digital and social media channels are fast becoming the standards in communication strategies. We have partnered DollarsAndSense and other digital and social platforms to deepen and broaden our strategy to create more meaningful stakeholder engagement.

Our team of professionals brings with them expertise from a broad range of backgrounds – journalism, investment research, investment banking, corporate communications, marketing communications and event management. Playing an integral and active role in the fabric of Singapore and the region, we are able to use our in-depth knowledge and broad-based industry experience to help our clients develop and fine-tune their communications programmes so as to achieve measurable results.
