Principal Asset Management has launched #ItihasGawahHai, an awareness campaign to help investors make informed investment decisions to deal with stock market volatility by highlighting important lessons from history. It aims to educate investors and create awareness about benefits of investing through mutual funds. The month-long campaign is conceptualized by FoxyMoron and will feature in various digital and social media platforms.
Commenting on the launch of the new campaign Bharat Ravuri, Managing Director, Principal Asset Management said, "Investors are currently confused and uncertain about developments in stock markets and are unable to make investment decisions that will support their financial goals. #ItihasGawahHai aims to highlight the benefits of investing in equity markets in the long-term through mutual funds by drawing important lessons from history. The campaign aims to provide answers to reluctant investors who want to know about strategies for investing, especially in periods of uncertainty, while helping to increase affinity to mutual funds and increase the penetration of the category in the country."
"The Investor Education Initiative is part of Principal Mutual Fund's mission to help people save enough, protect enough and foster financial security by helping them achieve their financial goals" Ravuri added.
Commenting on the campaign Pratik Gupta - Co-Founder Zoo Media & FoxyMoron said, "Our vision with Zoo Media is to be the preferred network of our clients. Working with Principal Mutual Fund has been a true testament of this vision coming to life. Our agencies across the network have contributed in building this campaign from the ground up, from coming up with a robust media plan, a larger than life digital video campaign, creating a landing page and even coming up with the communication 'Itihas Gawah Hai', we've done it all and are thrilled with the work we've put out. We're grateful for the support the Principal Mutual Fund team had in our vision and we look forward to this new direction that the brand has taken."
