Financial Services (105)
Everyday content for an everyday brand
ING Direct has entered into a partnership with Yahoo to create a new content channel on finance. Accessible via the homepage, “Monnaie Time”, the channel delivers exclusive articles and solutions to common financial questions and concerns.

The consumer credit company Cofidis has just launched a new signature - “From people, to people” - and changed its own brand positioning to get closer to its clients and their needs. The company is moving away from being known for anonymous and remote loans.
Dutch bank ING have introduced their customers to 'Tim', a digital personal finance management tool that’s linked directly to their bank account. The tool doesn’t require the manual input of data and instead personal spending is streamed and shown via the internet in real time.
