Telemus Named Winner At The 29th Annual FCS Portfolio Awards


    We are excited to announce that Telemus has been honored with a Bronze award in the Paid Social Media category for Consumer Retail at the 2023 Financial Communications Society Portfolio Awards.

    The award recognizes our Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) marketing campaign with players of the University of Michigan football team. The campaign, which featured five offensive linemen for the Wolverines, highlighted how Telemus protects client wealth, just like Michigan's offensive line protects its quarterback.

    The 29th Annual Financial Communications Society Portfolio Awards took place in New York City last Thursday, and recognized excellence in financial services marketing and communications. A panel of 40 senior marketing and creative executives from financial services firms and agencies selected the best work from over 500+ submissions.

    Congratulations to the other Paid Social Media winners. E*Trade received the Silver award while City National Bank and Bank of America shared Gold. Additionally, a serendipitous congratulations to two of the players with whom we collaborated on this campaign — Olusegun Oluwatimi and Ryan Hayes — on being selected during the fifth and seventh rounds of the NFL draft, respectively.

    We are continually grateful for and proud of all the Telemates who contributed their time, effort, and creativity to this campaign. And thank you to our clients and community for your continued trust and support.

    Endorsement by University of Michigan Football Team - Five Offensive Line Players (2022)

    This is a paid endorsement and none of the five endorsing players are clients of Telemus Capital, LLC ("Telemus"). Each of the players were paid $2,000 for this promotional material. This is a conflict of interest because due to such compensation, the players have an incentive to recommend Telemus Capital.
