NAB launches 'Wrangle Your Money' campaign with TBWA Melbourne

Matthew Stoddart: “Another fantastical and memorable chapter to add to the story.”

National Bank of Australia (NAB) has launched its latest advertising campaign, “Wrangle Your Money,” in partnership with creative agency TBWA\Melbourne and media agency Mindshare.

As an extension of the “More Than Money” brand platform, the new campaign arrives at a crucial juncture amidst ongoing economic fluctuations in the country.

NAB’s outgoing chief marketing officer, Suzana Ristevski, commented on the importance of supporting customers during this period.

“We know our customers are being really considered around how they spend their money right now,” said Ristevski.

“They need to make a lot of decisions, through which NAB supports them and helps them feel confident they are making the right financial decisions – no matter how big or small.​”

Set in a baby store, the campaign draws inspiration from cinematic western themes as NAB’s expert bankers assist customers in managing their finances.


Elly Bloom, NAB executive business and private bank said: “By unifying brand and product under a single platform, the creative and media halo has driven stronger campaign results across the bank.”

Matthew Stoddart, executive creative director at TBWA\Melbourne, described the campaign as “another fantastical and memorable chapter to add to the story of how NAB supports and empowers their customers.”

“First it was a house being chased by a Kingswood, and now we have stampeding baby furniture and a wild, bucking cot,” said Stoddard.

The 15″ and 30″ ads will be rolled out on television  and cinema, with additional comms planned across out-of-home, social, display, radio, and owned channels in the forthcoming weeks.

Last week, Ristevski has announced her departure after five and a half years at the bank.

She will join Google mid-year to lead the tech giant’s marketing across Australia and New Zealand, replacing Aisling Finch who departed late last year.
