McDonough Communications



Starting now

McDonough Communications helps financial firms empower their investment messages. 


We specialize in investment research. However, the principles inherent to clear, crisp, and compelling market content span the financial services industry.

The most important principle is what we call Shift|Key Content™, or the process of engineering the most efficient path for investment messaging to achieve its full commercial potential.

Our tailored solutions and organic approaches help firms maximize the financial and intellectual capital they invest in their content.


Content creation

We write market commentaries, periodicals, and primers, among other products, in the client's style and voice.

Traditional editorial

We edit to activate text, unlock its potential, and optimize the entire product for distribution to the target audience.

Executive coaching

We show executives how to leverage their expertise in ways that add differentiated conviction to their messaging.

Product analysis

We critique product suites and offer solutions designed to bolster readability, style, format, and commercial impact.   

Project leadership

We help clients build new publications as part of their initial ramp-up or to add to their existing editorial cadence.  

Writing seminars

We develop client-specific writing seminars that give participants the tools to increase their reach and efficiency.



We interview decision makers, analyze sample products, and benchmark our findings against stated goals.


We use that assessment to build a customized plan that we bring to life through refined goals and content. 


We offer continuous consultation as projects track to completion throughout submission and publishing processes.



Your organization, your people, your workplace culture. Describe your content, your audience, your goals. We’ll take it from there.


That investment messages are only as good as your ability to compel market participants to seek your unique view.
