Displays in 'Series'; Building stature & maximising exposure NEW DELHI: As the fiscal year enters the last quarter, a whole range of financial services including mutual funds are visibly stepping up their external communications to connect with a large segment across the country that is seen to be weighing all tax-saving options. The outdoor is witness to much of this action. Leading mutual fund DSP BlackRock is at the forefront of this communication drive, having launched an expansive, pan-India outdoor campaign to promote its ‘Opportunities Fund’ with Milestone Brandcom as the outdoor partner. The campaign has been rolled out in over 46 cities across the country over a two-week period.
