Beacon is the ‘go to’ strategy and communications consultancy for Britain’s hottest alternative finance providers.
Working with pioneers such as Zopa, Seedrs, SyndicateRoom, Abundance and Landbay, we have both unique experience and an unmatched track record of success.
We got here through our deep belief and dedication to pushing for significant disruption and improvement to financial services in the UK. Championing the ‘alternative finance’ movement has been a natural fit, as it is driving the most meaningful innovation and – finally – customer-focused competition.
We know how to get new concepts and new brands polished and fit for purpose. And then taken seriously by the press and able to reach the right consumer audience. We know how through 13 years of doing it for real, time and time again.
“Creating a revolution in finance needs brains, brawn and not a little bloody minded belief in your cause. Martin and Beacon bring all three in spades”
Bruce Davis, Co-founder and joint MD
“The PPI enjoys a high profile and unique credibility with the media, owing much to Beacon’s excellent work with us”

“Martin’s work for us with the media in our earlier years was instrumental in getting Zopa to its first £300 million of peer-to-peer lending”
Giles Andrews, CEO
“Beacon got us on the Today Programme, BBC News, Channel 4 News and featured in the FT with our very first report as an unknown charity. Amazing”.
Antony Elliott, Director
“Martin Campbell is a truly amazing PR man. When we launched Seedrs, we used PR as our main user acquisition strategy, and Martin was in charge of getting the press to tell the world about us. He did a simply brilliant job, and our early growth owes a tremendous amount to him. On top of that, he is genuinely great guy who cares deeply about the businesses he works with. I cannot recommend him highly enough”
