Situation & Challenge

XCap Investment Bank*, a global investment banking firm, faced a unique set of challenges that hindered its growth and market positioning. Despite a strong founding team and a solid track record in M&A and capital raising, the firm struggled with poor market share and a lack of perceived value.

Their primary source of new business was referrals, which limited their reach in a market ripe with opportunities.

Market Conditions

According to a report on investment banking trends, the market conditions were favorable for firms like XCap. The industry was experiencing a surge in M&A activities, increased demand for capital raising, and a growing focus on technology-driven solutions. However, XCap was unable to capitalize on these trends due to their limited online presence and inability to effectively demonstrate their past successes.

Our Approach

To address these challenges, we undertook a comprehensive brand alignment and digital transformation strategy. Our approach included:

  1. New Website Development: A modern, user-friendly website that reflects the firm’s global positioning.
  2. Brand Positioning Strategy: Transitioning from a boutique to a global investment bank in terms of messaging and visual identity.
  3. Content Marketing Strategy: Creating valuable content to engage potential clients and establish thought leadership in the industry.

How We Achieved This

Our multi-pronged approach involved several key actions:

  1. Website Overhaul: We designed and launched a new website that not only modernized XCap’s online presence but also included a “Past Results” section to showcase their track record.
  2. Sales Collateral: Developed a range of new sales materials, including presentations, videos, decks, sheets, and whitepapers, to better communicate the firm’s value proposition.
  3. Social Media Strategy: Implemented a targeted social media campaign to increase visibility and engagement.
  4. Brand Identity: Created a cohesive brand identity, including logo redesign and messaging, that aligned with the firm’s new global positioning.


The transformation was a resounding success, leading to:

  1. A new website that aligns with XCap’s global positioning.
  2. A significant boost in brand recognition and perceived value.
  3. A content marketing strategy that has engaged a broader audience.
  4. A social media presence that resonates with the firm’s target market.

Industries That May Benefit

While our focus was on an investment banking firm, similar strategies can be effective for any financial institution struggling with brand identity and market positioning. The key is to align your digital presence and branding with your actual capabilities and successes.
