Top 10 U.K. Social Media Influencers in Finance

Using our extensive media database, we compiled a list of the top 10 social media influencers throughout the United Kingdom operating in the Finance space. Our solution makes it easy to find — and connect with — the influencers that matter to you.

Create custom media lists that are automatically updated, send multimedia emails, and track who opened emails and where they clicked, all right from the platform itself. And our module, Influencer Streams, shows you exactly what influencers are talking about on social media, so you can personalize pitches and amplify your message.
