Bengaluru-based neo bank Fi Money recently launched its mutual fund offering on the app. To take things further, the app has introduced ‘curated baskets’ that help users find mutual funds based on their investment needs. The campaign featuring Sima Taparia of Indian Matchmaking fame, presents the show’s host as a ‘matchmaker’, helping confused users find the right mutual fund to invest in. The campaign includes an ad film with Sima switching roles from India’s top matchmaker to India’s top mutual fund matchmaker.
Spoilt for choice when it comes to Mutual Funds
Investing as a trend is picking up in the post pandemic world with younger investors starting to invest in market instruments. But with more platforms, apps, and resources this leads to an information overload. From what type of funds to invest in to picking the right fund from that category, there are a lot of questions that go unanswered. Adding to the clutter of information is opinions from influencers, blogs and forums that have formed a decision fatigue in the minds of users.
Mutual Fund Matchmaking: The Campaign
The brand launched the campaign by creating a LinkedIn profile for Mumbai’s top matchmaker who updated her followers about the latest feather in her cap – Mutual Fund Matchmaking. The campaign video broke on her LinkedIn channel as well. It features Sima Taparia in an Indian matchmaking like set-up announcing her return and speaking about how millennials today are very confused about investing.
We see her talk to millennials who have different kinds of expectations from their investment portfolio. We see Naresh, Reena, a ‘Crypto Puttar’ and his mom, as puzzled people who have different risk profiles and are eager to find the perfect match.
Fi also took this to Instagram by doing tutorials and explainers on Mutual Funds the Sima Taparia way.
