Transparency Times

The Transparency Times is our free monthly online magazine, produced in-house.

It contains a wide range of subjects from a broad range of authors but the overall message is how the power of transparency can be a force for good in getting the Financial Services Sector to provide the best possible outcomes to those it serves. 

The Transparency Times helps us to promote our vision; which is that we should all work together to drive positive progressive and purposeful finance reform, for the benefit of all, by harnessing the transformational power of transparency.

How to submit an article

We welcome any article on any relevant topic, by any author, from any part of the world. 

If you want to submit an article, this is what you need to do:

  • Provide your text:
    • Maximum 1,500 words
    • Only in Word
    • Without any formatting
    • In the same Word document please provide your bio, maximum 100 words (in addition to the 1,500 for the article itself) so readers know about you and your organisation
  • It is fine to re-purpose material that has been used elsewhere, but let us know the place and date previously published so this can be noted in the article. It’s also fine to promote any product, service or offering that is aligned with the idea of high levels of transparency and achieving better outcomes for consumers.​​​​
  • Provide at least one high-resolution headshot image of the author
  • Provide any charts, diagrams or graphics you want to incorporate into the article in original editable format and ideally in Excel but if that’s not possible a Vector file will normally be OK
  • Provide any links you may want to be incorporated into the article only if you have tested they work; please highlight the wording to ensure it is clear that it is a link
  • Provide your and/or your organisation’s Twitter Handle
  • Provide a high resolution image of your company logo

All of the above to be sent to me using the Email address below, and we’ll publish in the next available edition for you:
