While financial institutions’ copywriting needs are as diverse as their audiences, distribution channels and products, Brian McGlinchey has the agility to write copy to suit any marketing or communications objective.

It’s an approach he’s applied to a diverse collection of projects, including brochures, direct mail, web content, product guides, e-mail messaging, pitchbooks, audio and video scripts and employee benefits material.
Copy that educates. Positioning your financial institution as a trusted source of consumer information? Brian excels at writing copy that speaks to even the most complex topics in terms consumers can readily digest, incorporating subtle suggestions that gently point the audience to your company’s solutions. He’s used those skills to create seminars, educational guides, web content, radio spots, e-books and e-zines.
Copy that speaks to financial professionals. Whether you’re addressing financial planners, life insurance agents, registered reps or financial services executives, Brian knows what they’re thinking. After all, he’s walked in their shoes—and he’s applied that insight to create everything from product guides to white papers to ghost-written articles for trade publications.
