Alison has 25 years’ experience as a financial journalist and communications adviser for major publications and institutions.
She joined Honner from HSBC where she spent six years as a senior communications manager working across the spectrum of corporate communications, reputation management, issues and crisis management, content strategy and planning, media relations and more.
Prior to HSBC, Alison built a reputation as one of Australia’s leading writers on personal finance, investment and superannuation over more than a decade with the Australian Financial Review and a stint with The Economist in London. She also spent two years as public affairs and media manager with the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
Alison specialises in producing content that demystifies complex information so it can be easily understood, using, for example, op-eds, explainers, videos, social media, feature articles and policy papers to create an impact.
During her career, she has provided expert commentary on the trends and issues that have shaped today’s financial services sector, cutting across areas such as sustainable finance, ESG, capital markets, superannuation, retirement policy, funds management, personal finance and banking.
She is equally at ease creating content suitable for a retail audience as she is for high net worth investors, institutional investors or other stakeholders.
Alison holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Sydney. She has also completed both RG 146 Superannuation and Cambridge University’s Sustainable Finance online short course.
Her favourite pastime is an ocean dip, mostly in Sydney’s eastern suburbs but also wherever an opportunity presents itself.
