live every tradeThe campaign was created in-house by IG’s own advertising team, with the TV creative directed by Rupert Cresswell and produced through MPC Creative, who previously worked together on advertising for Bentley. The TV ad was shot on location in the Atacama Desert in Chile and saw the team working around the region’s largest snowfall for over 50 years.

IG is leading the financial trading industry by running a campaign that illustrates the range of emotions experienced when trading, driven by the tagline ‘live every trade’.

Paul Gyles, Head of Marketing at IG said: “Never before has IG run a global multi-platform campaign. With the company opening 14 offices across the world in the last 12 years, and our 40th anniversary coming in November, we want to demonstrate our long-term commitment to strengthening the IG brand. And by leading on our brand rather than focusing on our product, we are confident we will reinforce our position amongst active traders while bringing financial trading to the attention of a whole new audience.”

John Ayling & Associates have handled media planning and buying in the UK, which will see the creative run across a number of platforms including TV, digital outdoor, online and press. IG is the first company in the UK to buy digital outdoor advertising during peak travel hours to reach commuters.
