Furthermore, SJP shared its first-ever TV sponsorship on Sky Arts in March.

SJP’s sponsorship, mediated by Sky Media and Mindshare UK, reaches a diversified audience that is identical to those who watch the widely distributed free-to-air channel.

The campaign began on Easter weekend, 1 April 2024, with 15-second intros and 5-second centre breaks.

In summary, the cooperation between St. James’s Place and Sky Arts is the result of benefits that exist between the brands, as well as a meaningful audience fit.
