I’ve commissioned articles from Rob for a couple of years and am impressed by the clarity of his writing, his willingness to juggle several assignments at the same time and his ability to consistently meet very tight deadlines. He has written insightfully on a range of complex financial subjects but can also turn his hand to colour pieces. I can recommend him highly.

Rob has been writing for me regularly over the last 10 years. His copy is always well-researched and well-written and if I have any questions or suggest changes he is always quick to respond. I mainly use Rob for investment features but over the years he’s written a number of pieces for me on setting up and running small businesses. He always manages to get great case studies too, making his copy all the more enjoyable to read.

Rachel Lacey, editor of How to Retire in Style.

Rob has proven himself a reliable, efficient and effective writer. He is quick to respond with well-crafted pieces which solidly hit the brief and always delivers on time regardless of the ridiculousness of the time pressure applied to him.

Chris Sloley, editor, Citywire Selector.

Rob writes Moneywise’s Fund Briefing and Investment Doctor columns and I’m always impressed by how he manages to turn complex subjects into user-friendly guides that beginner investors can easily learn from. He’s also shown himself to be fantastic at sourcing case studies for highly engaging features on topics such as how to turn a hobby into a business and how to manage finances as a couple. Rob’s writing is always of a very high quality and I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Moira O'Neill, editor of Moneywise.

I have known and worked with Rob for a good number of years via his freelance journalism. When I needed some corporate writing he was the first name that came to mind and we were not disappointed. Rob showed a high level of technical knowledge and was very diligent and delivered all copies on time. I would not hesitate to use him again.

Darius McDermott, managing director of Chelsea Financial Services.

Rob Griffin has, for more than a decade, been a consistently professional journalist with a thoughtful, intelligent approach to the subjects he covers. Rob worked as my deputy at Sunday Business and it was a pleasure to have him as a colleague; I have since then used his talents as a freelance journalist and he is among a very small cadre of people whom I would trust to produce first-class work, first time.

Matt Guarente, director, Bladonmore Ltd.

I've worked with Rob regularly over an extended period and always been delighted with the results. He's full of good ideas, writes wonderfully well and always delivers on time.

David Prosser - Former business editor of The Independent.

I’ve worked with Rob for many years and always been delighted with the material that he produces. Script that is perfectly targeted at specific audiences and a great ability to explain technical details in plain English. Deep understanding of our industry and always a pleasure to deal with – a proper gent!

Jean Birrell - former head of European PR at Ignis Asset Management.

Working with Rob on a range of projects, from broadsheets to corporate copy, I'm confident in recommending him. His professionalism, flexibility and flair for copy go above and beyond and I hope to continue working with him for many years yet.

Kate Hughes, managing director, Fit for Print Ltd.

Rob Griffin stands out from other freelance journalists in always coming up with timely and appropriate feature ideas which, for The Independent, is not always an easy task. We have a different approach to most other papers, but Rob’s work for us reflects the time and effort he takes to communicate with our readers. On top of that he is always 100% reliable, which is crucial on occasions when we lumber him with short deadlines.

Simon Read, former personal finance editor of The Independent.
