Digital intelligence. An award winning philosophy 18 October 2021

At Living we believe that digital intelligence is critical. The components of this intelligence – distinctive branding, engaging content, and useful functionality – helps firms successfully reach their target audiences by slicing through the ‘corporate noise.’

And it’s this philosophy that has been rewarded today, with Living clients CFA Institute, Hausfeld and State Street Global Advisors all being shortlisted for prestigious Digital Impact Awards Europe 2021, receiving six nominations between them and making Living Group the most nominated agency.

Our ongoing and highly effective organic social media campaign for Marg Franklin, CEO and President of CFA Institute, is shortlisted for:

  • Best evaluation strategy, and
  • Best use of digital to an investment audience.
