Agency Network: 
November 2009

Despite being the largest independent private client investment management company in the UK, Brewin Dolphin has never advertised before. This campaign ran in UK national newspapers throughout November.

Print advertisment created by The Red Brick Road, United States for Brewin Dolphin, within the category: Finance.

At Brewin Dolphin we never.
Ever. Ever. Rush. A conversation. With a client.
Because conversation is the way you get to know somebody, and at Brewin Dolphin, getting to know our clients is paramount. When you really understand someone’s circumstances, their specific wants and needs, that’s when you can really help them. We’re independently owned, we have no in-house funds to ‘push’ and our investment managers are free to choose from the whole investment market, as are their clients. Which means your portfolio is tailor-made to suit you as an individual. So we have to get to know you, and sometimes just chatting about nothing is the best way to do that. It’s all part of a simple philosophy that guides everything we do: that the first thing we earn is your trust.

I might be the only person who thinks this but I think that the copywriter missed his mark. The intent seemed good sound casual while not abandoning professionalism (this is, after all, an ad for invesment mgmt). I think that he pulled off the casual part but the body of the copy is unsophisticated. I think that there is a way to accomplish both but I don't think that was acheived here.

This campaign is okay. Art Direction is interesting.

I'm here doing this, but feel I should be there doing that. But to do that, I have to be doing this. Does this make sense or do I have to explain that?
