Financial services content that gets read, and gets results

Need clear wording for a complex concept?

Want to tell your brand ‘story’ so it reads like a compelling narrative and not a set of dreary corporate facts?

Got a great new product you need to tell the world about?

It’s all too easy for businesses to inadvertently over-complicate their writing and alienate their readers. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

I’m a Sydney-based business and financial services writer with 15+ years’ experience translating specialist and technical material into compelling, user-friendly communications.

I help organisations big and small to tell their stories, engage their audiences and and solve their customers’ problems.



FILIPPO RAGUSA, Executive Manager People Integration at Commonwealth Bank

"I worked with Richard on a remediation program and found him to be highly engaged, talented and a team player. His capacity to translate high levels of complexity into simple messaging and communications, while always keeping the recipient in mind, was impressive. It was a pleasure to work with Richard and I would gladly do so again."

JULIE HARGRAVE, Head of Marketing & Communications, Fiducian Financial Group

"Richard has been an efficient and reliable resource to work with, to say the least. We needed to bring in a copywriter who could ramp up instantly and deliver high-quality web content very quickly. Richard did all that and more, in a very responsive, thoughtful and professional style. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him as he is creative and versatile, and adapts very well to the needs of his clients."

ALIX GILLETT, Loyalty Marketing Executive, The Australian

"We engaged Richard to write the digital creative copy for our monthly subscriber rewards program. We were delighted with Richard’s precise response to our creative brief and the quality of work he produced. He was always quick to respond and reliable at meeting our tight deadlines. Our overall experience of working with him was excellent. I’d highly recommend Richard as a creative and reliable copywriter."
