Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 19, 2012
For the first time, marketing professionals at retail and institutional asset management firms across North America will have a window into industry trends and competitor firms. The Wickware Financial Services Marketing Index (FSMI) will track key indicators, such as how much firms spend on marketing, where they dedicate resources, whether they are hiring and how these factors link to assets under management growth.
“Marketers are often operating in a vacuum and want to know what their peers are doing,” said Cara Crosetti, account director at Wickware Communications. “The Wickware FSMI will give them the context they need to understand the competitive environment, identify links between marketing success and business growth and build a stronger business case for marketing at their own firms.”
In addition to publishing the survey results, Wickware will translate the findings into a measure of the overall strength and confidence of financial services marketers. The index will be set at a baseline of 100 on July 1, 2012.
