NAB has launched a campaign that asks Australians ‘What is money for, if not for this?’

Rolling out nationally across TV, radio, digital and social, the campaign brings to life the bank’s longstanding More than Money brand platform by showcasing the everyday things that matter most to Australians.

“What is money for, if not for this? is an evolution of our longstanding More than Money platform. In the current challenging times many Australians are re-evaluating their lives," NAB executive, group marketing Suzana Ristevski says.

"This campaign is about helping our customers refocus on what matters most, and to provide the peace of mind that NAB is here to support those aspirations, whatever they may be.”

Clemenger BBDO executive creative director Richard Williams says the campaign highlights how 2020 has provided a "rare moment of clarity" for everyone.

“We have all been forced to take a step back and understand what is more than money and more importantly what money is for," Williams says.

"This campaign reminds Australians that NAB, like them, understands what is money for if not for our homes, our employees, our loved ones or our businesses.”

Mindshare managing director Chris Solomon says banks have played an important role throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

“NAB has been supporting its customers through the crisis and Mindshare is incredibly proud to be a part of the new Brand work," Solomon says.

"As a key partner to NAB, our aim in media is to really demonstrate this support through high-reaching touchpoints and media integrations.”
