Amanda Funds Investing Brochure
Institution: National City Bank, Cleveland
Assets: $100 billion; 1,000 locations
Agency: Blattner Brunner Inc., Pittsburgh
Since investing is a personal experience and people want to be treated as individuals, the bank decided to pattern its investing brochure along the lines of a personal journal.
The idea was not only to create a memorable piece, but also to position the Amanda Fund as among the well-known fund families, and also to create a comprehensive sales tool that could be used by both internal and external channels.
