LONDON—Havas Worldwide has launched Chandos Communications, a new financial communications firm that will operate alongside Maitland, a well-established UK-based sister agency.

Chandos will provide proactive financial and strategic communications advice to international companies and institutions looking to access global audiences, particularly those based in London’s financial center. It works with companies active in the global capital markets and European and international companies seeking to reach London-based British and international media, opinion formers and investors.

Founding clients include Telecom Italia, Monte dei Paschi di Siena and INWIT.

The agency is run by Louise Tingström, managing partner, and Teresa Wincrantz, associate partner. Tingström was previously a partner at CNC Communications, which she joined after 11 years at M: Communications. Wincrantz was previously a director at CNC and before that held senior roles at M: Communications and Brunswick.
