Jargon-free finance writing with a dollop of opinion

Holly Mackay: Writer

Holly Mackay is a byline consumers trust. Her writing is always clear and enjoyable, backed up by research, and in language real people understand. So it’s little wonder she’s a regular contributor to The Times, The Daily Mail, Financial Times and many more household names. 

Holly writes with clarity, empathy and humour, and champions the consumer voice in any way she can. This often means stepping away from the page and turning to video, interviewing industry bigwigs, capturing consumer vox pops, or making difficult subjects clear with the aid of props and gags.

"This is such a refreshing financial commentary that I have shared and will continue to share with friends interested in their financial lives. Delivered in a practical, amusing no nonsense way...love it ...keep doing it. It's my must read."

"Holly is a breath of fresh air in a very fetid world! I feel as if I've landed inside an alternative universe, where someone actually says it like it is, doesn't try to impart spin/pull the wool, calls out those that are doing so..... and is a knowledgeable advocate for us minnows. Oh, and her way with words is often laugh out loud! Love what you're doing Holly. Thank you."

"Clear information in a murky world. No one has the time to dig into every ISA and investment supplier, so its good to see a short and sweet yet comprehensive website which gives the salient factors and allows some quick comparisons. From there one can go and explore further. I applaud the common sense approach. Well worth saving the web address."

"I really enjoy the emails from Holly! She makes money interesting - I actually look forward to reading them. The advice is useful, and for someone who doesn’t work in finance they offer succinct and understandable information"

"I really like how Holly breaks down the good/bad/ugly of each investment platform on the website, it helped me decide which ones to use depending on what I was looking for at the time. Also, I receive her email every week and find it very friendly and informative, keep up the great work!"
