Stella Artois becomes real hedge fund investor
With slogans such as “An Investor measures the growth of his hedge fund” and “Once upon a time a hedge fund was just that”, the ads initially catch the eye of those of us interested in financial services.
The question is whether they’ll get people buying and drinking more Stella Artois beer. The beermaker is hoping to boost its sales by promising to work with The Tree Council to plant hedgerows across Britain — to help wildlife and soak up CO2 — if you buy a special pack of its lager.
The marketing industry response so far looks promising.
But the real test of whether people are spurred into drinking more Stella Artois out of a sense of environmental responsibility will be in the British countryside.
Look out for miles of hedgerows with “Sponsored by Stella Artois” signs.
