Hyped Fintech Anyfin Attacks Loan Sharks – With New Spokesdolphin

Anyfin is a Stockholm-based fintech startup that helps consumers lower their credit costs on existing part-payments, private loans and credit cards. Now they are launching their new concept ​“Be smart. Pay less.” ​and introduces their latest recruit: Delfi, the Anyfin spokesdolphin.

The films introduce Delfi, a spokesdolphin who’s on a mission to teach humans how to be smart with money, and pay less by avoiding fishy deals and high credit costs. As self-proclaimed arch nemesis of Loan sharks, she explains how Anyfin helps people to lower their monthly costs on consumer loans.

In the first film we find Delfi the dolphin at a restaurant where she explains - by turning down an offer to buy fish straight out of a suspicious-looking man’s trenchcoat - how Anyfin helps us avoid fishy deals. In the second film, Delfi is laughing at sharks in a tank, showing how Anyfin keeps loan sharks at bay.

– We wanted to find a way to show how smart and easy Anyfin’s product is, but also tell the story about how we as a company are on a mission to put the power back in the hands of the consumer. What could be smarter than a dolphin that not only knows her way around finance but also is a true expert when it comes to loan sharks?, s​ays Mimmi Grafström, Head of Marketing at Anyfin.

Anyfin has been listed as one of the world’s best fintech innovators and was founded by former Klarna, Spotify and iZettle employees.

– We dolphins know a thing or two about sharks. Great whites, Hammerheads, Bull sharks ... Loan sharks. They prey on high interest rates, and I’m here to put an end to it​, Delfi, Spokesdolphin at Anyfin, comments.

The campaign is created and produced by international creative agency Acne, with VFX and post-production by Swiss.
