  • BiscayneCapital – Latin America

Miami-headquartered wealth manager BiscayneCapital has launched a new advertising campaign across Latin America – a move which follows hot on the heels of its launch of a new office in Montevideo, Uruguay.

The new yearlong advertising campaign consists of a series of print advertisements aimed at both ultra high net worth families themselves and their advisors. The ads will run in a selection of luxury, lifestyle, travel and automotive publications, including Pluna, American Airlines" Nexos magazine and Forbes Argentina. The campaign will run in tandem with the firm's sponsorship of various sports events such as the Nokia Summer Cup in Punta del Este, Uruguay and the ProAm Charity Tennis Tournament in Key Biscayne, Florida.

The advertising campaign centers on the concept of "Valores" (Spanish for values) and the firm said in a statement that this plays to its core value of treating clients "like they are family."
