Ausbil appointed HM Communication Group to their creative and media account.

The idea was to combine and individually feature three key Senior Ausbil partners each with a Lion, Tiger and Owl to highlight the animalistic qualities ‘strength,’ ‘wisdom’ and ‘agility’ – attributes that help differentiate the business from its competitors.

Creative director for the campaign Mike Boswell said, “This new association allowed us to re-establish Ausbil’s local boutique image, reinforced by the rock solid credentials of NYLIM. Ausbil needed the advertising to punch way above its media spend and cut through the clutter of the local investment market advertising.”

Ausbil Investment Management CEO Paul Xiradis added, “HM did a great job with our latest advertising campaign. They came up with a terrific creative idea that has achieved real cut-through for us in what is a competitive marketplace.”

New Business Win #3 – RCG
