We’re the UK’s best-qualified annual report copywriters
Let us help you tell your story to investors
Your annual report is much more than a report on last year. It’s your once-a-year chance to tell your story to investors. You need an experienced annual report copywriter to help you make the most of it.
We’re experts in corporate reporting. In fact, our background in investor relations and accounting probably makes us the UK’s best-qualified annual report writers. That means we’re as comfortable crafting your messages as we are writing about your balance sheet.
Helping you make sense of best practice
We’re more than just annual report writers. We advise you on structuring your report and help you to make the vital connections in your content – how your business model leads to your strategy, how your strategy connects to risk and KPIs, the link between performance and pay, and how sustainability runs through everything. If you want to develop critical content, such as your business model and strategy, we have the experience and knowledge you need.
We also know best practice through and through, and keep up with ever-changing regulations so you’re always ahead of the game. And we know the rules you have to comply with, so we can make sure you’re meeting your obligations as well as telling your story.
Showing how governance adds value to your business
The quality of your corporate governance has become a key part of your investment case, so our job doesn’t stop when we get to the middle. We help you to communicate what’s really important about your governance approach, ditching the boilerplate so you can prove how well you’re running the company.
Making your life easier
It’s a fact of life that you have to produce your most-challenging and important document at your busiest time of year.
That’s why our whole approach makes your life easier. We gather the information we need to write your report by interviewing your senior management or sending them carefully crafted questionnaires. Our experience helps us to ask the right questions, so we capture the key messages you need to get across.
We also keep in close touch with your design agency, ensuring that the copy and design work together. And we hit your deadlines, no matter how tight the timetable, so you can rest assured it will all be ready when you need to sign off.
Not listed? No problem
Most of our annual report copywriting clients are public companies, ranging from AIM stocks to the FTSE 100. But we also work with private companies who want to explain their business to customers, partners, suppliers and staff. We help you to find the right balance between disclosure and storytelling, to create an effective report that communicates just what you need it to.

What our clients say about our annual report copywriting services
“Richard has worked with Radley Yeldar over the past two years writing and developing a consistent tone of voice for a large FTSE 100 utility company. His ability to work at c-suite level and write transparent, clearly defined copy has helped us on the journey to reaching best practice reporting. I would highly recommend Richard to other companies that are trying to tell a complex story, simply, with an appropriate tone of voice.”
“Richard is a consummate professional and a joy to work with. His experience as an in-house investor relations director means he has an unrivalled understanding of the issues inherent in our type of work. He is also very pragmatic and practical – a thoroughly nice guy who really knows his stuff!”
