Upstox launches ‘Cut the Kit Kit’ campaign; to help users invest wisely

Mumbai | 28th March 2024: Upstox, India’s fastest-growing and highest-rated trading and investment platform, unveiled its innovative brand campaign, ‘Cut the Kit Kit, Get in the Market’. With this campaign, Upstox aims to help retail investors cut through the clutter, noise, and overload of information to invest right.

Through its research, Upstox has recognized that the journey to investment success is often cluttered with challenges – mis-spelling financial products, misleading advice, information overload, and complex jargon. This can often lead to decisions that may not align with an individual’s financial goals.

For example, users often prioritize returns over essential risk and expense metrics when investing in mutual funds. Similarly, they might opt for a Rs. 1 crore term insurance plan without proper assessment, succumbing to a one-size-fits-all approach. Such practices result in poorly informed decisions, leading to underconfidence among investors. Recognizing these challenges, Upstox has taken the initiative to handle the heavy lifting and complexities for its users. The company wants to “Cut the Kit-Kit” (noise) of the market and encourage users to start creating wealth by investing in what’s right for them.

To effectively communicate its message to investors, Upstox has launched a campaign film encapsulating the theme “Cut the Kit Kit, Get in the Market.” The film takes place in a theatre setting, where an individual expresses interest in mutual fund investing. This query triggers a cacophony of comical “kit kit” responses from others, symbolizing the overwhelming banter and noise prevalent in the market. This noise serves as a metaphor for the confusion caused by the deluge of information available to investors. The plot progresses until the protagonist, initially bewildered by the array of advice, is introduced to the Upstox Mutual Fund interface. This moment marks a turning point, offering the protagonist—and, by extension, the viewer—clarity and simplicity in the investing process. Similarly, the second ad film features a salon situation, and the third film features a waiting area at a hospital.

The company is also planning to launch two more campaign videos over the next few weeks. The films will depict how people often struggle with the right information when it comes to investing, but with Upstox; users can cut to the chase and get the guidance that lets them Invest Right.

Speaking on the launch of the campaign, Kavitha Subramanian, Co-Founder of Upstox, said, “India has traditionally been a nation of savers rather than investors. A significant barrier has been the lack of clear, accessible information, leading to poor investment decisions. Upstox’s mission is to empower every Indian with the right knowledge and tools to invest wisely across all asset classes, avoiding common pitfalls.”

Upstox has partnered with Lowe Lintas for the conceptualization of the campaign. The campaign spotlights Upstox’s robust platform offerings, including:
Curated Top Funds: A selection of mutual funds in popular categories, balancing returns and risk.
Goal-Based Investing: Personalised investment solutions tailored to individual life goals.
Informed Stock Choices: Features like Analyst Ratings and stock smartlists guide users in making confident stock investments.
Diverse Investment Options: From Mutual Fund Baskets to Gold investments and Fixed Income opportunities, Upstox offers a wide range of investing avenues.
Simplified Investing with SIPs: Systematic Investment Plans in Stocks, ETFs, and Mutual Funds for disciplined investing.
Comprehensive Wealth Tracking: The Wealth Tracker feature enables users to consolidate their financial portfolio by synchronizing bank accounts, external stocks, and mutual funds, allowing for a unified view of all savings and investments on a single app.

With its platform, Upstox wants to help users cut through the market noise and make wise investing decisions and aims to transform into a holistic wealth creation platform with everything one needs to save, invest, trade, and build their wealth.
