Bank of East Asia Teams With Prophet Brand Strategy to Revitalize Exclusive 
SupremeGold Brand 
HONG KONG, CHINA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/12/14 --  Prophet, a
strategic brand and marketing consultancy, has announced its
collaboration with Bank of East Asia, Limited (BEA) to contemporize
the SupremeGold brand to better fit the needs of today's young
affluent customer. The new SupremeGold is stylish, sophisticated and
customer-centric, brand attributes that come to life in the brand's
new visual identity, brand positioning, retail design and overall
customer experience. 
Prophet has worked with BEA for two years, helping the large
independent bank to significantly stand out from competitors with a
bold and impactful rebranding campaign launched in April 2013. Bank
of East Asia re-engaged Prophet to address SupremeGold -- a wealth
management offering created for affluent customers. After 10 years in
the marketplace, SupremeGold needed to be repositioned to meet the
needs of the emerging demographic of successful young professionals
without alienating its existing customers. 
"We developed a brand story, campaign and retail experience that will
make Bank of East Asia's SupremeGold offering more appealing to a new
generation of affluent consumers while still resonating with their
traditional customer base," said David Brabbins, Associate Partner at
Prophet. 
The design of the SupremeGold visual identity and customer experience
is based upon the brand concept of "Wealth Health" and uses the
metaphor of blooming natural environments to communicate the idea.
This concept inspired a retail environment with an abundance of
richness, colourful materials and comfortable furniture -- a place
for customers to relax and enjoy. The refreshed brand is expressed at
every touchpoint, underscoring BEA's commitment to work with its
customers in a healthy, long lasting partnership that builds their
wealth year after year. 
"We chose to partner with Prophet again on the SupremeGold rebranding
project as we have previously worked with them and they have a great
understanding of our requirements and brand strategy," said Vincent
Hui, General Manager at Bank of East Asia.
