AB ETF Campaign Launch 01

Answering the call. A brand strategy for new ETFs 14 September 2022

AB (AllianceBernstein) is a global asset manager known for its research strength and innovative thinking. A powerhouse in munis, AB was looking to leverage its reputation to launch its very first set of ETFs (exchange traded funds). Turning to Living, AB challenged us to create a robust campaign to dramatically announce the arrival of two active ETFs and set the stage for more to come.

Living is equally research-driven, so we dove into our discovery phase beginning with a competitor review of six leading ETF providers. With our proprietary Living Ratings as a foundation, we analysed these companies’ value propositions, supporting ETF brand messages and online content, visual brand elements and advertising media. We then conducted a set of internal workshops, bringing together the EFT leadership team, fund managers and corporate marketers. We followed up with a series of one-on-one interviews to drill down on our initial set of findings.

Capitalising on a name change to invigorate a brand 16 August 2022

Since its founding in 2010, Murphy & McGonigle had developed a strong reputation as a boutique law firm specialising in financial services, regulatory counseling, and enforcement defense. But even with its recognition as "Law Firm of the Year" for Securities Regulation two years running, an alignment of the firm’s brand positioning and messaging ‘wouldn’t hold up in court.’

With the departure of founding partner James A. Murphy, the firm decided it was time to revitalise its brand along with a review of how its website could further bolster its stance as a specialised leader – with the goal of driving revenue growth while attracting more talent to its ranks.
