What can you do?
We will accept articles on a wide range of subjects relating to investing and pensions. However, you should be a market expert in your field. Contributions should not be written in highly technical language which the majority of non-professional investors would struggle to understand. Articles must be independent and not promoting or advertising a specific product. However, they may take a view on a type of structure, security or product which may have specific or general application, and examples are acceptable if we do not consider the context overly promotional.
What are our requirements?
Articles should be around 1,000 words, with a maximum of about 1,250. Longer pieces will be considered where we accept that the type of article demands it. Please write in Microsoft Word, without columns or complex formatting. Contributors should avoid footnotes, little-known acronyms, financial jargon. Generally, contributions should target an Irish reader and be accurate for Irish law and regulations.
Articles may be edited or require redrafting. Quotations from external material should be used sparingly, and references to previously published items should use links with summary paragraphs, not direct downloads of the content.
How do we thank you?
We offer an outlet for experienced writers to air their opinions to a wide audience of engaged readers. We also plan to acknowledge your work in the ‘Contributors’ section on the website. We will write a brief note about each Contributor and provide a link to a business, personal or charity website.
To encourage a wide readership and to ensure our independence, we will not charge readers a subscription fee nor collect product-related fees.
