Ours does, and our 15 years of experience crafting financial information into plain English business copywriting runs the gamut from blue chips to SMEs, and state to federal government.

Time and again, our plain English finance writers and editors have convinced and informed employees, customers, stakeholders and investors.

A good plain English finance content writer writes in a way that gives someone a good chance of understanding it on the first reading, and in the way that you want them to. Effective finance writing is clear, direct writing, using as few words as you need, which avoids ambiguity, verbage and complex sentences. It does not, however, mean always using simple words at the expense of the most accurate or writing like a pre-schooler.

Poor finance writing or a poor personal finance writer can be costly and potentially disastrous to your brand. If your audience doesn’t understand you due to bad grammar, unclear wording or inappropriate style and tone, you can lose business as well as credibility.

Importantly, your final finance writing product will:

  • be in plain English
  • feature short, concise sentences
  • be on-brand and on-message
  • speak directly to your audience
  • be engaging, professional and friendly
  • be professional finance writing
  • intelligently combine authority, emotion and reason.

Goal Setting

In the words of entrepreneur Jim Rohn, “if you go to work on your goals, your goals will go to work on you”. Goals take you closer to what you want in life and where you want to go and most importantly they offer choice. Setting goals and developing your financial strategy today gives you that choice and working out what your personal goals are is a good place to start.



UBank wanted a high quality, genuinely useful and interesting weekly blog covering economics and finance. APM was tasked with coming up with weekly ideas and the result allowed UBank to stand out amid the clutter and noise of the blogosphere. Here’s a sample from two of the 200 we’ve written.

Change is the essence of capitalism

Back in 1942, Joseph Schumpeter popularised the idea that creative destruction of economies, and/or sectors of economies, was critical to prosperity and growth. He posited that progress in a capitalist system relied on the destruction of an existing economic order to make room for the next. Capitalism was, essentially, an evolutionary process of continuous innovation.

Agents of this creative destruction range from the opening up of new markets to revolutionary technologies like steam engines, electricity, the combustion engine, and the internet.

What is a free trade agreement (FTA)?

An FTA is an agreement between two countries, or even whole regions, to eliminate things that hinder free trade such as import duties, export bounties, domestic production subsidies, trade quotas, import quotas and trade tariffs. Taxing imports protects domestic industries against competition from cheaper (sometimes better) imports, which encourages us to buy Australian. This is known as protectionism, the upside of which is good because money stays here to fuel employment and other sectors. On the downside, protectionism shields local companies from the real trading world, which can stifle innovation and the pursuit of excellence.

What is the ‘information gap’?

This is called the ‘information gap’ and here at Grow Capital, we’re 100%-committed to bridging this gap with a solution that ensures clients have the right information and lenders get the complete information they need to make faster, better decisions for our clients.

RBC Investor & Treasury Services


The brief:

RBC Investor & Treasury Services is a specialist provider of asset services, custody, payments and treasury services for financial and other institutional investors worldwide. APM was commissioned to attend a one hour panel discussion and write up a report RBC could send to clients.

Copy sample:

The panel compared Australia’s gradually evolving distribution strategies with the dramatic influence of Asia’s disruptors like Alibaba and China Mobile. While these have had a significant impact across Asia, the panel agreed the nature of Australia’s highly regulated environment makes it less likely that such disruptors could have a similarly dramatic effect here. While a revolutionary financial technology (fintech) player may enter the market, the impact will be more moderated. The panel believe the pace of regulatory change is the greatest current disruptor.  Trust and confidence were cited as non-technical disruptors.
