Newly formed fintech giant Refinitiv has appointed TBWA/London to lead its worldwide advertising, with support from TBWA\Chiat\Day in New York.

Refinitiv is a $20bn venture formed by Thomson Reuters and a consortium led by private equity giant Blackstone to provide financial markets data and infrastructure. It is gearing up for a worldwide launch across 100 separate markets, focussed on an OOH campaign spanning London, New York, Shanghai, Tokyo and Sydney.

It wants TBWA to differentiate it from competitors through the creative idea that ‘Data is Just the Beginning’, highlighting that Refinitiv sees data as a starting point for innovation rather than as an end in and of itself.

“We partnered with TBWA to best articulate the Refinitiv brand because of their success at launching some of the most iconic brand platforms over time. With the future of financial markets ever evolving, ‘Data is Just the Beginning’ reflects the potential we can achieve with our customers in a complex world.”
