Launching a new bank credit advisory services brand
By the time the principals of Diligent Bank Credit Advisors opened their doors, they had looked at a lot of bank records. And when we say “look,” we mean “diligence.”
Diligent’s core business is buy-side due diligence support for the acquisition of whole banks or bank loan portfolios. Their primary deliverable is a technical report supporting their estimates of expected loss.
These reports help banks, bank investors, investment bankers, and government and regulatory agencies make better informed decisions about buying and selling banks and bank loan portfolios.
- Zero brand awareness
- Incumbent advisors — larger firms were often already embedded into prospects’ operational processes
- Prospects didn’t understand the substantial experience base, depth or intricacy of Diligent’s review process, which meant they didn’t understand the value
- Branding and positioning built around the principals’ specialized experience, skill set and deliverables
- Customized data sheets and presentations
- Logo Design
- Web Development
- Content Marketing
- Business Development
- Collateral Design
The logo includes a contemporary font (bankers love their serifs), a checkmark and a period — both symbolizing completed diligence. We wrote the positioning line “Diligence for actionable intelligence,” which summarizes the firm’s value proposition in four words.
radii’s branding process not only helped us to communicate who we were, but also helped us establish a vision of who we could be.
Now we just try to live up to it.
— Jamey King, Diligent
