Marcus by Goldman Sachs’ “You Can Money” campaign positions the bank as Main Street’s primary account

Marcus by Goldman Sachs has launched its new creative “You Can Money” campaign featuring Golden Globe and Emmy Award winning actress Rosamund Pike. Pike was chosen to embody the brand’s message that Marcus helps consumers’ money work smart. She serves as the brand’s character “M,” which originally appeared in 2020.

With increased competition in the space, banks are switching emphasis from opening accounts to becoming their customers’ primary accounts. The Marcus campaign showcases how the Goldman Sachs brand can be a customer’s primary financial institution by comparing it to incumbents with humor. While traditional FIs can offer free pens and coffee, Marcus offers high yield savings accounts.
