Due to lack of time, we have focused our initial hour of search on JPMorgan Chase and Morgan Stanley also conducted a pre-search on the rest of the brands. We have singled out JPMorgan Chase to describe the steps we have followed in a bid to obtain the needed information.
Having searched through the different sourcing available to us, including the company's annual report/Form 10-K, news publications and articles from marketing experts such as Media Radar, Statista, and EMI Boston and from the company, and the company's profile across business directory sources such as Dun and Bradstreet, Crunchbase, and Craft.co, we were unable to find any source with the direct marketing spend of JPMorgan Chase across different regions such as the UK, France, Germany, and Poland or across different channels such as traditional or digital channels. The company's annual report only provided insight into the total ad spend by the company.
As a result of the lack of regional data about some of the companies listed, we propose a triangulation in order to obtain a feasible estimate as a substitute for the company's actual ad spend.
To achieve this, we will assume that for big corporations;
The percentage of the ad budget spent by the company on advertising across the UK, France, Germany, and Poland for the different years is equal to the percentage of the company's total revenue generated by those regions. For example, if JPMorgan Chase UK generates X% of the company's total annual revenue, then the company also spends X% of its advertising budget on the UK.
Applying the above assumption, we can triangulate an estimate for the ad spend for the different companies listed and also, an estimate for the Share of Voice (SOV) for the brands.
