Cognito is an integrated communications and marketing agency, with specialisms including finance and investment, technology and data, professional services and business markets. With six offices spanning three continents, we help companies improve their performance through smarter marketing and design, and build their reputations with compelling content and persuasive communications. 

Strategy, creativity and analytics cut across everything that we do. Our clients range from the biggest financial institutions and professional services firms, to startups disrupting established markets. Whatever their needs, our clients trust us as an effective partner.

Our deep expertise across sectors gives us the discipline and insights that, in combination with creativity and channel expertise, allows us to reach the right audiences and ensure our clients resources go furthest in the places that matter.

This is all driven through our people. We hire the best talent from varied backgrounds, all tied together by an innate intellectual curiosity. We’re media junkies; we love the intersection of finance, technology and public policy; hungry to grasp the problems organizations face; and passionate about design.  We’re creative and agile – leading to smart strategies and exceptional work.

Founded by our CEO Tom Coombes in 2000, we have grown organically across major markets and into new practice areas. With senior staff having equity exposure, and a single global P&L, our alignment with each client is unusually strong and simple.  Many clients use us across geographies and across marketing and communications disciplines.  It’s easy to have multiple offices, but clients often remark on our lack of internal divisions and can-do approach.  



We focus on being a trusted partner and strategic advisor to our clients - and ultimately on delivering a fantastic service.

Tom Coombes, CEO
