This campaign features two sets of online VDOs; the first video conveys the story of a couple who rely on Emma by AXA for support in their lives and it shows how Emma has helped them successfully address their health concerns; the second advert features Emma by AXA's financial planning assistant and highlights how the application helps people plan their finances to increase their long-term wealth. The premise of both adverts centers on Emma’s, accessibility and user-friendliness. Both VDOs feature the renowned actress, K. Ying- Rhatha Phongam, a modern and determined woman who is an expert on all health-related matters and thus mirrors the concept of Emma.
