Mumbai:India’s leading financial services company, Motilal Oswal Financial Services has appointed Mullen Lintas Mumbai as its creative agency. The agency was chosen after a multi-agency pitch.
As part of the mandate, apart from delivering solutions on conventional mediums like TV, Print, Radio and OOH, Mullen Lintas Mumbai will also provide strategic recommendations and creative ideas for the digital and social space.
Commenting on the appointment, Ramnik Chhabra, Marketing Director, Motilal Oswal said, “Mullen Lintas managed to creatively interpret our communication brief with simplicity and impact. Important parameters while communicating in a category with low penetration and awareness.”
The win marks Mullen Lintas’ foray into the financial services sector. Launched about a year-and-a-half ago in India, the agency has been having a brilliant run over the past few months with multiple new business wins across key markets of Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore. This win marks another important milestone for the agency in the current financial quarter after it recently won the new business mandate of Tata CliQ and Too Yumm!
Speaking of the win, Amer Jaleel, Chairman & CCO, Mullen Lintas said: “Motilal Oswal is a large enterprise that’s founded on strong principles. And the simplicity with which they approach financial services is quite impressive. When we met the people behind this inspiring organisation we were really thrilled by their childlike enthusiasm towards the advertising idea that we had proposed. Their reaction and response pretty much sums up our campaign premise. You’ll soon get to see some really clutter breaking work.”
Expressing his views on the win, Virat Tandon, CEO, Mullen Lintas said, “Everyone knows that Motilal Oswal are the best at what they do – making money for their clients. But, what we also realised in the pitch process was that they are also very good at understanding and buying good creative work. Their brief was very clear and I guess we gave them an idea that they believe will make money for them. We are very excited on winning this mandate.”
