Journalism, corporate comms and thought leadership: from payment cards to pensions

With a background in personal finance and investment journalism, I’ve written for a wide range of financial services clients.

They include MasterCard Europe, KPMG/Association of British Insurers, Bank of Scotland, Scottish Widows, Blackrock and various other fund managers.

I’ve written for the Wall Street Journal Europe, The Observer, Moneywise, What Mortgage, What Investment, Investment International, and a succession of magazines about tax-efficient investing.

I also launched and edited Personal Finance, which won various financial journalism prizes.

Much of my current work on financial services involves pensions, including writing customer and adviser communications for Scottish Widows, and working on white papers and blogs for KPMG on pensions freedoms.

“Sarah provided a complete repertoire of communications and marketing functions for SAIC during its first 18 months of existence … I have particularly enjoyed working with her as I know she is utterly dependable, highly productive, extremely efficient, and a reliable safe pair of hands.”
