European public affairs with a core strength in financial services and competition policy
Afore Consulting is an independent, premium European public affairs consultancy with a core area of expertise in financial services, regulation and competition issues. Based in Brussels, we advise companies and other organisations on their engagement with the European Union (EU) institutions, Member State governments, the supervisory community and other stakeholders.

Afore Consulting is an independent and innovative public affairs consultancy attracting high quality work in financial services and related service industries such as legal, accounting, insurance and advisory. We also have a well-established track record in covering the macro-economic developments in the EU from the Euro to wider political and economic issues.

Our clients include commercial to investment banks, securities firm and brokers/dealers, trading platforms, payment and card providers and retail financial institutions.

Afore Consulting is independently owned and managed by its Directors, Anne Keane and Nickolas Reinhardt.

Our team brings a multi-cultural and multi-lingual dimension to the service we provide. We all have a strong academic background in the European institutional process along with relevant consulting or institutional experience.

Whilst Afore’s expertise is at the European level, we also advise clients on representation and advocacy in the Member States. Where appropriate we draw on our network of legal firms, communications companies and other consultancies with a proven track record in the Member States, United States, Canada and Asia.

We are active participants in most of the relevant policy fora including inter alia chairing the EU Asia Financial Services Roundtable, the American Chamber of Commerce to the EU (AmCham) and holding the Vice-Chair of the AmCham Financial Services Committee, membership and participation in key think tanks such as the Steering Committee of the Harvard Law School Symposia on international financial markets regulation and the Centre of European Policy Studies (CEPS). Our team members have also lectured and published on European issues and accept regular speaking engagements.
