Penfold launches multichannel media campaign

26 August 2021


Penfold, the digital pensions challenger, has unveiled a new media campaign across TV, VOD and out-of-home.

Finally – a flexible pension that’s easy to set up and effortless to use.

The brand’s first ever TV advertising spot debuted during an episode of the rebooted Changing Rooms on August 25th, with further activity scheduled across channels sold by Channel 4 and Sky. The flighting of the TV campaign will be geared towards building brand awareness over a three-month timeframe; supplementary airtime on Video on Demand will drive incremental reach.

From September, Penfold will also introduce out-of-home into the campaign strategy to build on the momentum generated by TV and maximise mental availability.

The bold message at the heart of the campaign – a reflection of the disruptive energy at the heart of Penfold’s ethos and product offering – was developed and honed by Designate, with Guerillascope managing the media planning and buying of the multichannel strategy.

Penfold is a simple, flexible and easy to use pension service aimed at anyone looking to start a pension from scratch or consolidate old pots. Their product empowers its users to stop worrying about the future and get back to enjoying the here and now. Encouraged by impressive growth since launching in 2019, the company now wants to widen its reach and engage new customers through the power of mass media.

The product offering is a compelling one; with features like quick set-up, flexible monthly contributions, cutting-edge security and low-cost investment plans. Their focus on disrupting the complex and old-fashioned practices of the industry means Penfold is the ideal pension provider for modern workers.

Commenting on the campaign, Georgie Burks, Head of Brand Marketing at Penfold, says: “The launch of our first mass media campaign is a really exciting milestone for the company. Having generated considerable momentum over the past two years, we’ve worked closely with Guerillascope and Designate to develop a strategy that we believe will successfully position Penfold to a wider audience and get more people saving for their future.”

Alexa Buckler, Associate Director at Guerillascope, adds: “Working with a bold, disruptive brand such as Penfold fits perfectly with our own strengths and ethos. It’s an exciting partnership built on shared values and collective ambition – one we look forward to developing further over the coming months.”
