Rest makes noise for fair super in ‘Feel the fairness’ campaign

Rest, one of Australia’s largest profit-to-member superannuation funds, has launched a new brand campaign featuring a boundary-breaking body percussion performance designed to capture how it feels to be a Rest member.

Developed in collaboration with BMF, the campaign features real Rest members and artists and its unique creative platform is a first of its kind for Australian superannuation.

“Rest exists to help our members achieve their best-possible retirement outcome regardless of age, gender, background, or balance and our ‘Feel the fairness’ campaign helps us bring this to life, says Andrew Ford, General Manager - Brand and Marketing at Rest.

Superannuation can be a challenging category for people to engage with and feel for, but fairness is something Australians can get behind, says Lucy Kough, Creative Director at BMF.

“Fairness is a concept that is best understood when it's felt. This platform aims to make super something all Aussies can emotionally connect with. And a group of people making music with their hands, arms and thighs seemed like the right place to start.”

“Everyone should have access to fair super,” Rest’s commitment to this is reflected in its member-centred model and offering which includes lower fees, says Ford.

“Our profits go back to our members, rather than shareholders, which enables us to offer lower fees and that’s something we’re proud to celebrate.

“For working Australians just starting out and with lower balances, higher fees can have a disproportionate impact on their super savings – lower fees mean more money is put directly towards their retirement balances, enabling them to maximise their savings over the long term.”

Rest has around 1.9 million members – of which 60 per cent are women, half are younger than 30 years old, and many work in part-time and casual jobs. By featuring talent from a diverse range of backgrounds, the distinctive campaign is designed to reflect and engage this diverse membership, says Ford.

“The campaign is designed to capture the hearts and minds of working Australians and our members across the nation and is an important part of our work to see young people engaged in their financial futures.”

Rest’s digital service offering is also a significant part of this work and includes a virtual assistant, online advice tools, and a highly rated app designed to support members active involvement with their super.

The integrated campaign will run across cinema, digital, outdoor and television.
