Style Guidelines
Please submit material under one of the following headings. All material must discuss subjects of
international interest:
In the style of an editorial, these are topical, opinionated pieces that often express a fairly radical or
controversial view. They are shorter in length that articles or analyses, and are more “punchy” in style.
Word length: approximately 1,500
Articles should focus on a major, current theme of interest to the banking and financial community.
They should explain a current situation or issue in a fairly practical way and provide thoughtful analysis,
comment, evaluation and criticism as appropriate. Comparisons with other jurisdictions should be added
where appropriate.
Word length: approximately 4,500-5,500
Legal Analysis
A very specific, significant topic (such as an individual case, Bill, Act or section of an Act) should be
discussed. An analysis should explain why it is of relevance to a particular jurisdiction, and internationally.
It will be more factual than an article, but still provide a degree of analysis and evaluation. Analysis pieces
can often be converted from a significant news item.
Word length: approximately 2,500
