Wealth Managers, Twitter activity report - 1st August to 30th November 2016
Wow what a few months, in Britain we talked about, digested but still didn’t have much of an answer as to what the Brexit referendum results would bring. We were fascinated by the U.S. election, leaked emails, accusations of Russian hacking, FBI involvement and ultimately a Trump victory. The FTSE crept up from 6693 to end the period on 6752.
So surely plenty to talk about on Twitter, let’s look at what the UK Wealth Management industry got up to.
Companies in this review:
Credit Suisse has the most followers with a total of 259,000.
However the largest number of new followers with a total of 23,040 in this period goes to UBS - that's an increase of 9.1% to take them to 252,000. On average an amazing 768 new followers every day.
Spikes of new follows came after UBS tweeted a link to an interactive game on inequality. The game is designed to test your knowledge on policies and how you would deal with real life inequality situations.
Popular tweets from Hargreaves Lansdown included a Q&A with Neil Woodford on Sterling weakness, interest rates and risk of loss and also their achievement on raising £15,000 for the Youth Adventure Trust.
Biggest reactions per posts
Spikes in engagement on Twitter came from posts supporting Liverpool Football Club who have Standard Chartered as their shirt sponsor. The use of the #LFC hashtag and tweeting the Liverpool Football Club handle was key to increased engagement.
Topping the leaderboard again, the most number of impressions during the 4 months with approx. 19,000,000 was achieved by UBS.
