Over the last five years Rob has conducted a significant number of company profiles and interviews for print and digital titles across FT Retail Finance. I have always been very happy with the quality of work that Rob presents - polished, accurate and, above all, on time. Rob is someone that we value enormously over at FT Business
Ben Bonney-James - Sales Director at the Financial Times.
 
I’ve used Rob's services as a writer for the last seven years because he always produces clean, interesting and well-researched copy on time. I can’t think of higher praise than that.
Chris Torney - Personal Finance Editor - Daily Express.
 
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- Personal Finance Editor - The Independent
 
Rob is one of our regular freelancers, and the reason we're happy to use him again and again is because he’s a very experienced investment journalist and can always be relied upon to deliver accurate and interesting copy. His friendly and positive attitude also makes him a pleasure to work with.

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.

I have commissioned Rob for a number of very different titles, and he always delivers. His copy is fresh, accurate, engaging and always on brief. Not only that but he is a real pleasure to work with. He can handle difficult clients and subjects with tact, sensitivity and insight.
Sarah Coles Freelance editor.
 
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 used to commission Rob when I was editing supplements at Incisive Media between 2004 and 2006. Whatever the brief, Rob would deliver high quality copy that was topical and interesting to read, without ever missing deadlines. He helped us out often by delivering work despite very short notice. One of his writing talents is the ability to understand technical dry details and explain these in simple interesting language, which brought his articles alive. In doing these supplements we would partner with fund management houses who were always pleased with what Rob produced. Rob deservedly has an excellent reputation across the industry and it was always a pleasure to work with him.
Jenne Mannion - Former supplement and wealth editor, Incisive Media.
 
We can always rely on Rob to deliver insightful copy on time and in line with briefs
Anna Kierstan Editor, Specialist Publications.
 
I admire Rob for the quality of his ideas, but also for his ability to turn those ideas into engaging pieces that appeal to a wide audience. He has made invaluable contributions to our publication over the years.
Richard Allen – Publisher, Fulham Review.
