The Financial Times has unveiled a new brand campaign with the endline ‘Make the right connections.’ It demonstrates how the FT takes readers beyond the headlines and helps them connect the dots between events and issues in an increasingly complex and interconnected world.

The global campaign is comprised of a range of creative executions that illustrate cause and effect around consequential subjects such as technological disruption, the China slowdown, Brexit, and the US election.

The first round of creative work covers: the impact of the China slowdown on African commodities, how a change in the Chinese diet is affecting the Australian land market, what might happen to Bordeaux sales if the Chinese property market goes bust, the impact virtual reality could have on the tourism industry, and whether a post-Brexit Britain could become the Venice of the 21st century.

The campaign will run across multiple marketing segments, including brand, B2C, B2B, and retail and will be promoted through social, search, display, print and outdoor in the UK, US and Asia.
