A bit about me first of all. I’ve managed to rack up over 20 years of experience working in the financial services sector. In that time, I’ve experienced life on both sides of the fence – the business side and the regulatory side. On the business side, I’ve worked in broker sales, consultancy, administration and technical roles in the fields of life, pensions and investments.
On the regulatory side, I’ve managed to acquire many years’ experience as a compliance officer.
So I know my way around the business, and I can adapt to any sector – which has made the decision where to specialise as a writer very easy.
When I’m not working, you’ll find me playing saxophone in my own jazz group (and other peoples’ bands, too!)
My early days were quite varied. I found myself writing everything from entertainment blogs to pieces about car airbags and product descriptions for furniture catalogues!
Not very specialised at all, but a fantastic training ground.
I started specialising in financial services about seven years ago, and I haven’t looked back since. There’s so much to write about in our industry because things are changing all the time – not just businesses but rules and regulations too. Also, quality written copy and content is becoming more important all the time.

About: What Clients Think
If you’re still not sure about whether we can work together, take a look at this:
“For us, Martyn has proved to be a master of his trade. He is blessed with a rare talent for distilling the often complex, ambiguous and heavy-going into the digestible and readily understandable. But it is his ability to translate and communicate ideas which, frankly, can sometimes be dry and tedious, in such an engaging and entertaining style that sets him apart from other writers in this sector.”
