PMG brings together Tendulkar & Dhoni for new campaign

Aims to position mutual funds as a preferred investment option for potential investors.

Mumbai: Professional Management Group has brought together the two cricket legends—Sachin Tendulkar and Mahendra Singh Dhoni—in one campaign.

Launched by the Association of Mutual Funds in India under SEBI’s guidance as a part of its investor awareness outreach program, the "Mutual Funds Sahi Hai" campaign aims to educate the common public about mutual funds and dismiss myths around them. 

The AMFI campaign’s aim is to position mutual funds as a preferred investment option for potential investors. PMG finds commonality between financial goals, from taking calculated risks based on a wealth of experience to being aware of surprises from opponents as useful tips in staying a step ahead in matches and making the most of available resources. Hence, the two cricketers make a perfect choice for the campaign creating awareness around mutual funds.

PMG, India’s first sports marketing company, first struck a deal with AMFI in 2020, which included legendary cricketers like Sachin Tendulkar and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. The association is now three years old and looks to grow stronger with each passing year.

The AMFI is an association of all the asset management companies of the SEBI-registered mutual funds. The latest "Mutual Fund Sahi Hai" campaign, featuring these two cricket icons, encourages people to start investing in mutual funds through the monthly SIP route for their long-term financial goals, like their children’s future and retirement.

Commenting on the long-term partnership, Sachin Tendulkar said, "It has always been a wonderful experience working with the AMFI team. With every campaign, the aim has been to generate greater awareness about the benefits of investing in mutual funds with a long-term view. This campaign is no different, and we hope to highlight the importance of investing along with saving, which is a crucial message for all."

Referring to the importance of investing for the long term, M. S. Dhoni explained, "Staying put for the long term is what works best, be it cricket or investments. Mutual fund investments are managed by qualified professionals who have in-depth knowledge of the markets and are backed by years of research. Investing at least some portion of your savings in mutual funds will help you achieve long-term financial goals, is the key message that we are trying to convey with this campaign."

AMFI chief executive N. S. Venkatesh said, "This is the third year of our association with Sachin Tendulkar and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Their contribution to Indian cricket has been exceptional, and people look up to them. Bringing them together for this campaign was a big step towards bringing mutual funds closer to the general public. The response has been great, and we couldn’t have asked for more. We thank PMG for getting this organised for us."

Professional Management Group COO Melroy D'souza added, "This is a landmark moment for Indian TV as two of the biggest legends from the sporting world come together for a campaign. Both Sachin Tendulkar and MS Dhoni stand for trust, belief, and long-term vision, which are synonymous with AMFI's campaign vision. We at PMG are thrilled that we managed to get them together and will continue to work on out-of-the-box ideas and create an impact."
