MBC Strategic Receives Prestigious Platinum Award at the 2019 dotCOMM Awards In Finance

This year, MBC Strategic, a financial and investment marketing agency based in Santa Monica, is the proud recipient of three dotCOMM Awards in the category of Financial Website design and development. Specifically, the awards were for two asset management websites and a real estate investment firm. The dotCOMM Awards, one of the highly regarded evaluators of creative work, strives to reflect and highlight how creatives in the dynamic web are transforming the marketing and branding industry. From marketing campaigns to content marketing, dotCOMM Awards have recognized excellence in web creativity and digital communications for over 20 years, honoring the creative professionals who continue to push the boundaries of digital marketing.

MBC Strategic received the highest honor in the category of Finance, taking home the prestigious Platinum award for its comprehensive rebrand for institutional asset management firm Wasmer Schroeder. In addition to the Platinum award, MBC Strategic received two Gold awards for its work for Cambiar Investors and Domos.

Cambiar Investors, an institutional asset management firm specializing in relative value investing, partnered with MBC Strategic for a comprehensive redesign of its website that is focused on both retail and institutional investors, showcasing their SMA strategies and mutual funds. Domos is the co-living investment arm stemming from a joint venture of Real Estate Asset Partners (REAP Capital) and Civitas Communities, who collectively have over 30 years of experience in developing and investing in workforce housing and co-living. They tasked MBC Strategic to develop the brand and its identity by creating an industry leading website and materials necessary for its market launch. The 2019 dotCOMM Awards recognized these investment rebranding and website designs for its interactivity, content, and design.

MBC Strategic is honored to be recognized by both the dotCOMM Awards and the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals, AMCP, as leaders in creative communication and digital marketing. Matt Brunini, Founder, says, “We are proud to continue to produce quality, award-winning investment marketing materials, websites and comprehensive rebrands for our clients as we help grow their businesses, but it doesn’t stop there. Our goal is to always push the boundaries of financial branding and marketing, helping the industry to compete creatively while we overdeliver for our clients.”
