In light of the COVID-19 outbreak and in support to Kuwait’s government efforts and front lines security, NBK Capital launched the “Invest in 0” digital campaign to encourage the public to reduce the number of new cases to 0 by staying home and maintaining social distancing. The campaign consisted of three main messages aligning with the importance of following precautionary measures in the aim of flattening the curve and ultimately returning to normal life.
The campaign received media recognition for its bold and daring statement defying the financial and investment typical evasion of the number 0, which made it gain praise and success in the financial and business sectors for its creative and unique direction.
