Influencer marketing is a new frontier in the industry, given the regulations surrounding it.

In recent years, financial clients have needed much more persuading and assurances surrounding the ethics of influencer campaigns within the space. Due to regulations from the Federal Trade Commission and other industry authorities, more disclosures are sometimes necessary.

Including the “ad” hashtag, or using more mindful language in their posts, isn’t impeding the need for marketers to catch up to the influencer trend.

Many financial institutions are finding that the way to the millennial markets heart is through influencer-based social media efforts.
