Meet our cartoons for consumer awareness: Name the characters and stand a chance to win!

As you all know, consumer awareness is one of the major items in the new FPI strategy. There are several initiatives currently underway and planned in this regard. Most of you watched the consumer video on FPI website. We started to use cartoon characters in the video and we thought that we should take this further and create our own and unique characters that we will use to inform consumers on the importance of financial planning, using a professional financial planner as well as the impact various life stages might have on an individual and his/her life goals.

These characters, together with her friends and family, will appear in regular cartoon strips that will be published in consumer magazines, newspapers and our website. These characters however need names and this is your opportunity to come up with names for them. They will become well known amongst consumers and will change the lives of many who will start to use the services of professional financial planners.

Will she be Cindy or Carol? Will he be Bob or Brian? Maybe we should name him Frank, the one who really has client’s interest at heart. Send your suggestions to by no later than Friday 23 November 2012.

If your suggested name is used, you will win yourself an extreme adventure voucher worth R1500.
