General manager of marketing and CFO, Jason Azzopardi, noted: “There is no doubt that we are entering a highly competitive market, but having thrown a number of challenges at both agencies early on in our relationship – shooting remotely during lockdown and under incredibly tight deadlines – we have no doubt we are in the best hands. We look forward to a collaborative and fruitful relationship with both agency partners.” offers consumers online, fast and fully transparent service as an alternative to traditional banking. The campaign studies the lengths Australians will go to to save a few dollars when changing a home loan can save much more.

Magnum & Co managing partner, Carl Ratcliff, said: “It’s been a pleasure working with the team, from start to finish on this particular campaign. Together, all agencies and client have worked tirelessly to get an original launch campaign out and underway without prejudicing either brand or sales objectives. We look forward to an enduring relationship.’

Taska Media founder and partner, Christian Simon, added: “We are incredibly excited to be working with and honoured to be chosen to launch the new brand into the Australian market.

The campaign is running nationally on TV, broadcast-video-on-demand and digital.
