TAG launches specialist division for investment management sector

Travel and event management company TAG has announced the launch of a new business division specialising in the investment management sector.

Sitting alongside corporate, touring, events, private travel and production, the newly established investment management division will deliver a bespoke service to the sector, alongside the ‘high touch’ experience TAG is renowned for, according to director of business development and strategy Daniel Price.

“We have been working with investment management firms for over 30 years, so we understand their ways of working and what is important to these clients,” he said.

“We realised that their needs differ from our corporate travellers, so taking the expert knowledge we have built up over three decades and creating a specialist division is a huge benefit to both existing and prospective clients.”

TAG’s investment management division will manage all travel requirements for this type of clientele, including niche areas such as financial roadshows.

Steve Barrass, chief executive of TAG, said: “We are delighted to have yet another specialist offering to support our clients.

“TAG is not your standard travel management company. We’re deliberately different and we want our clients to know that we put service and experience at the top of our priority list.

“It’s great to see this expansion after such a difficult time for the industry. As business travel begins to increase, the need for specialist partners who truly understand the challenges and complexities of their clients’ businesses will grow.

“TAG has always led the way in this sense and seeing us continuing to bring new services to the market is great to see.”
