The role of creative strategy, ad disclosure and regulatory focus in investors’ decision making: An experimental investigation
This study examines the effects of creative strategy and ad disclosure in financial services advertising (FSA) and individual differences in regulatory focus on retail investors’ attitudes and behavioral intentions. Results from a between-subject experiment indicate that investors’ regulatory focus (promotion focus versus prevention focus) moderates the effects of FSA related to creative strategy and ad disclosure. Specifically, prevention-focused investors (promotion-focused investors) had more favorable attitudes towards and showed greater purchase intentions of a financial product when exposed to informational ads and ads with disclosures (transformational ads and ads without disclosures). The authors offer theoretical, managerial and public policy implications.
