The publication launched Stock360 on 6 January.
Jordan Lau, head of business development at HKEJ, told Campaign Asia-Pacific that the company has enhanced its stock investment interface to make investment planning easier, adding functions such as trend lines and total transaction volume at different trading prices.
“Quite a lot of HKEJ’s readers are high-net-worth and savvy professional investors, but we want to widen our audience base, as many office workers are also active in stock investment,” he said.
To that end, HKEJ appointed local creative agency Crimson Advertising, which has been working for HKEJ on a project basis, to produce a series of ads based on colloquial Cantonese phrases frequently used in stock investments.
The campaign will run in two phases, first in the Group's in-house media, including Hong Kong Economic Journal, hkej.com and EJ Monthly, throughout January. The campaign will reach the wider public in February and March through paid media in both OOH and digital channels.
