Chiappe Financial Editing & Writing was set up by Adrian Chiappe in 2010 to offer investment banks and fund managers an expert editing and writing resource focused on their specialist requirements – a service that he’d been providing through various in-house and consulting roles for more than 15 years.
Driven by both the widespread restructuring in the wake of the financial crisis and the growing trend for outsourcing, and disillusioned by what he perceived as a lack of editing/writing talent in the financial services space, Adrian felt the market would be better served by a bespoke provider, with the skillset and expertise and ultimately the critical mass to be able to provide a highly responsive and truly flexible outsourced solution. His approach was to bring together experienced editorial and marketing talent whose combined experience, knowledge and expertise could deliver a broad range of highly relevant services to clients.
After securing several contracts through old in-house contacts, Adrian joined forces with a couple of old colleagues, also attracted by the greater variety and flexibility that multiple clients made possible. Additional banks and investment managers were soon lured in – initially for Chiappe’s editing and writing service, seemingly keen to utilise our proven expertise and experience, as well as greater flexibility and wider availability than most in-house teams, and of course greater transparency in costs.
The Chiappe team continued to expand, adding extra editors in the US to better service that time zone, and then another in Asia. It soon became apparent that alongside and editing and writing, there was significant latent demand for an outsourced flexible supervisory analysis approval service, particularly in the US. Enter Bill Frankel, a highly experienced supervisory analyst, to head up our new SA team; JP Morgan’s loss was our gain. This move proved to be a turning point for the Chiappe business, and SA services increasingly became one of our cornerstone offerings, with several more SAs bolstering the team. We now offer multiple SA’s as standard.
We operate globally, offer our services on almost a 24-hour basis, and have a flexible pricing model encompassing per unit, and fixed price, fully budgetable contracts. We believe we offer an extremely cost-effective alternative to in-house staff – you only pay when you use us and no hidden extras! Almost all our clients work with us on ongoing contracts, and fortunately, have tended to stay with us. Hopefully that means we’re doing something right.
Chiappe Financial Editing & Writing is, we believe, the pioneer of out-of-house research editing and supervisory analysis, and now boasts what is probably the largest, and certainly the most experienced team of experienced editors and SA’s specialising in investment research. Chiappe is now the trusted source of experienced financial editors and SA’s to over 20 of the world’s investment banks and brokers.
We bring a deep level of understanding to our work that many of our clients believe to be unique in the editing and writing market. We’re passionate about what we do, and hopefully that shows.
We highlight here the broad range of services we can provide. You may not need us today. But as the opportunities develop over the coming year/s, we would like you to know we are here, ready to assist.
