TRA’s Brand Trust Report 2019 had been prepared after comprehensive primary research conducted on the 61-Attribute Brand Trust Matrix of TRA. The study involved 15,000 hours of fieldwork, covering 2,315 consumer-influencers across 16 cities in India, and generated 5 million data points and 9,000 unique brands, from which the top 1000 brands have been listed in this year’s report. “Without trust, the entire engagement of a brand becomes ineffectual. The trust a brand generates is the basis of all transactions that consumers have with the brand. The act of trust involves a voluntary transfer of resources – emotional, physical, financial or material – with no immediately visible, tangible or quantifiable commitment back to the trust or consumer. Therefore, the onus of building the trust-bond rests completely with the brand,” said N. Chandramouli, chief executive, TRA Research, in a statement.
