Transparency report may put pressure on agency margins

Agency profitability may come under pressure if clients take a more aggressive attitude towards relationships with in-house production units and third party suppliers following a new report on financial transparency published by the US Association of National Advertisers (ANA).

The report details a range of circumstances in which clients may not always have been aware of the financial implications of services provided.  It provides a comprehensive 10 point guide to advertisers on how they should conduct their agency relationships.

Copies of the report Production Transparency in the US Advertising Industry are available from Association of National Advertisers, 708 Third Avenue – 33rd Floor,  New York, NY 10017.
