Fowler’s Group

Repositioning a heritage brand

A passion for improvement

Fowler’s Group have built their strong reputation with exceptional customer service and proven financial advice to people of all ages, from all walks of life.

They’re one of the few CEFEX-certified financial advisory firms in the world and a founding member of GAIA. They commit themselves to exceptional conduct, trustworthy service and placing their client’s interests above their own. Their commitment to service has been followed with expansion and undeniable success. Yet despite all they’ve accomplished so far, they still didn’t feel they were done. There was more they wanted to achieve.

This passion for continual improvement has led Fowler’s Group to re-energise their brand after identifying a gap in brand positioning and communication. Not one to settle for less, they knew a purposeful brand strategy would guide their future direction, ensure focus on their hard-earned certifications and guarantee they stayed on track for further growth.

Retaining their heritage

How did Fowler’s Group redefine their brand positioning and communicate their USPs to the market?

Viabrand® undertook an immersive process that included a brand workshop in order to understand over 50 years of heritage and create new focus areas of business growth. Supplementing this, our team conducted in-depth research to refine buyer personas, brand personality and key USPs. All of this was delivered through a communication framework paired with recommendations for enhancing clarity and the company’s communication approach.

To retain their heritage, their identity remained the same with the inclusion of a new brand promise statement that allowed the business to express their most compelling selling proposition: Achieve More.

The newly introduced communication framework supported their mission to help people rethink wealth, planning, investment and management in their personal lives.

Marketing their experience

Viabrand® designed and produced distinct brand assets to promote the company and refresh their brand with new stationary that complimented their heritage without stifling future growth.

New business cards, letterheads and email signatures were included in the re-energising of Fowler’s Group. In addition, Viabrand® assisted with the company’s social media to ensure their brand remained consistent and echoed their key communication messages across all platforms.

By refining the way they communicated and providing clarity across all content marketing, they were able to market their brand as a strong industry leader with extensive experience and dependability to back up their claims.

A seamless website design

Fowler’s Group’s dedication to creating a more refined and trustworthy message to clients continued through to their brand website content.

Viabrand® combined top-notch copywriting, design and web development for seamless usability while ensuring their USPs were communicated to clients. Their website was designed to educate clients on their history and services and to encourage customer engagement through welcoming visuals and targeted messaging.

With clear call-to-actions across the website and a well-defined brand story, those who visit the website are able to connect with the brand with varying degrees of interaction. They include reading informative content, signing up to their newsletter or booking a consultation with their expert team.

A brand built on confidence

As the re-energised brand rolls out to market, Fowler’s Group clients have already recognised and found confidence in the new branding.

Now, Fowler’s Group can promote themselves with confidence by using the brand framework. The accolades they acquired by building a well-recognised and successful business are reflected in their new brand positioning. Their perceived value and credibility has also improved with the increased focus on their accreditations, providing confidence in their speciality areas of service.

Step-by-step the client has created a communication framework that flows through every aspect of their brand, asserting a consistent brand message, positioning and the ability to compete with some of the very best global CEFEX and GAIA constituents.

Fowler's Group on track for future growth

While Fowler’s Group’s history has earnt them a longstanding reputation as financial services leaders, the company are also well set up to continue expanding. With consistent messaging across platforms and clear calls to action throughout their website, Fowler’s are positioned to accomplish their proposition ‘Achieve More’ in every way. That includes inspiring and helping numerous others to take charge of their financial futures.

Our project manager, Amber, worked tirelessly with me to ensure that I was brought up to speed on all the major decision points. Even at an advanced stage of the project, my feedback was listened to and incorporated which was very much appreciated and I was struck by the responsiveness and professionalism of the Viabrand® team.
