Idea Creation RADAR Sydney, AUSTRALIA

The Campaign

The creative concept of “Discover the potential” brings out a series of symbolic metaphors to project the possibility of something bigger and better with Asian fixed income. With our Asian fixed income franchise, we used the metaphor of a pot plant transforming into a stable, robust tree with yield and harvest; drawing the analogy of how Asian fixed income can bring interest and stable income to investors’ portfolio. Expanding to our range of 6 fixed income solutions, each fund’s unique selling point and benefit is illustrated vividly with the same creative concept by using a foreground object and the “imagined possibility” as the key visual on the mural wall which draws out the potential of what the solution can offer.
