UK Financial Services Advertising Overview

Amid the cost of living crisis, most financial providers adjusted advertising expenditures, and overall ad spend fell by 19%. However, continuing to communicate with consumers and adopting the right tone remains important to create and maintain customer relationships and offer comfort during uncertain times.

Financial Services Advertising and Marketing – Consumer Insights

Despite providers’ efforts to create advertisements that appeal to people’s needs, desires and emotions, almost two-thirds of Brits say they rarely see adverts for financial products or services that resonate with them, rising to three-quarters of consumers among over-65s. This suggests that financial services brands looking to engage people in this cohort have to ensure that advertising portrays them as rounded human beings, reflecting the diversity of their lifestyles, needs and desires.
