TBWA\NZ and ANZ Bank New Zealand have launched a new brand platform to help improve the financial wellbeing of all New Zealanders by providing them with the resources, support and products they need. Rather than telling New Zealanders to get ahead or dream big, ANZ’s ‘We Do How’ is about giving people the practical know-how they need to start their financial wellbeing journey.
The campaign tells the story of Ravi and Claire along with their two children Sameer and Tara Sharma. The first story shows the many ways Ravi and Claire set out to improve the financial wellbeing of their family, but the heart of the story is about father and son as Sameer spends years working towards his dream of becoming a Black Cap. Their journey unfolds over time as we watch Sameer grow from a young boy into adulthood, with ANZ Bank New Zealand supporting the family and providing the ‘hows’ for their ‘whys’.
The emphasis on family also reflects new survey data* commissioned by ANZ Bank New Zealand that reveals post Covid-19, New Zealanders feel wealth is more about knowing they can pay for things to help their family thrive.
Shane Bradnick, TBWA\NZ Chief Creative Officer said: “It’s a universal story we can all relate to about why we work hard in New Zealand and how we want our families to enjoy a better, happier life. It’s also a modern New Zealand story that reflects our diversity and how our love of family and a desire to help our kids succeed is a ‘why’ we can all understand. The Sharmas show us a range of ways to help us all start to improve our financial wellbeing and through them, we can see that if you have a ‘why’ then ANZ has the ‘how’.”
The recent ANZ survey found New Zealanders feel a strong need to improve their financial wellbeing with almost 60 per cent of people wanting to save or invest more for their future and 77 per cent thinking they could be doing better with their money.
Matt Pickering ANZ Bank NZ’s General Manager of Marketing said, “Kiwis want to improve their financial wellbeing, but often just don’t know where to start and so it’s the ‘how’ part that’s important. ANZ is committed to giving Kiwis the practical tools and know-how they need to do this, which is why we’ve set up our Financial Wellbeing Programme.”
“Financial wellbeing isn’t about being rich, it’s about feeling better about your finances by confidently managing your money today and being able to save a bit for tomorrow.”
‘We do How’ will be launched with a hero two-minute ad, which is part of a suite of work designed to demonstrate ANZ’s commitment to financial wellbeing. The campaign will appear on TV, digital, social, PR, OOH and in-branch. As part of the internal ANZ staff launch ‘The Deck of How’, a deck of playing cards packed with financial wellbeing ‘hows’ and a digital book ‘The Book of How’ are being produced.
