Optimum expands comms offering to Switzerland

Leti McManus will work with firm on IR, corporate and financial comms


Strategic health comms firm Optimum Strategic Communications has unveiled a collaboration with experienced specialist Leti McManus to offer investor relations, corporate and financial communications in Switzerland.

Switzerland is best known as the home of two of the international pharma sector’s biggest companies, Roche and Novartis, but in recent years has seen lots of new start-up and spin-out biotech and health tech firms, plus considerable inward investment from US-based firms, attracted by its low tax base and rich life sciences ecosystem.

Leti has 16 years of experience in Equity Capital Markets and four years’ experience as a communication specialist (in-house and agency). Having worked in Switzerland for many years, she has a strong network across Swiss institutional investors, private banks, independent asset management firms and family offices with a particular interest in healthcare investments.
