That’s a wrap:
UBS reaches close to a
million readers with thought-
Over the weekend of 20 and 21 May, UBS asked close to a million newspaper readers in Hong Kong and Singapore: “What are your aspirations in life?”
A unique newspaper cover-wrap asked this among other thought-provoking questions, prompting readers to consider their wealth management needs. The campaign quizzed readers on their provisions for future generations or ways to ensure a smooth business succession. The cover wrap also showed how UBS could secure and nurture family and company finances.
The newspaper wrap was handed out along with Hong Kong publications, South China Morning Post, Sing Tao Daily and Hong Kong Economic Journal and Singapore dailies, Sunday Times and Lianhe Zaobao. It was also distributed to International Herald Tribune readers, selected airport lounges and published on websites.
Singapore Press Holdings nominated the cover-wrap for the final Readers’ Choice Award Category in its ‘iink’ Awards this year, the biggest advertising award in Singapore.
