Providing PR and editorial to wealthtech global player
Before we came on board, wealthtech provider Finantix was doing great: securing clients and progressing technical capabilities. But it lacked a consistent marketing comms approach and PR could have been working much harder in terms of demonstrating consistent momentum and establishing brand authority.
In 2019 Finantix ramped up its commitment to marketing with the appointment of an experienced, dedicated CMO. He immediately set about putting in place a more structured strategy that balanced a strong news pipeline with a considered thought leadership position alongside measurable and achievable goals and metrics.
Our remit was clear, with a central focus on differentiating Finantix from its competitors. To do this we would articulate the business strategy for wealth managers and private banks to adopt digital technologies that could enable frictionless onboarding, maximising client engagement and retention while optimising market share and margins.
Ultimately, we wanted to establish Finantix as an authoritative voice and thought leader and make them the wealthtech vendor of choice.
What we did
Working closely with the CMO, the fintech team built a strong pipeline of press releases to announce client wins, acquisitions, partnerships, new products, key hires, company developments and more. This regular flow of news would help establish Finantix as a company with forward momentum.
We sought out feature and thought leadership PR opportunities across key fintech and wealthtech trade titles, and secured and drafted bylines attributed to a range of key senior people, expanding this to include InCube leaders following its acquisition by Finantix.
We also set up a strong industry award programme which identified relevant awards and provided support to prepare award entries.
We achieved extensive coverage across 2019, 2020 and 2021 (to date), with significant achievements across all key areas of briefings, press releases and bylines in Tier 1 publications. These included The Banker, Fintech Futures, FT Adviser, IBS Intelligence, Private Banker International, Professional Wealth Management, The Fintech Times, and The WealthNet.
