“Ian Fraser is one of the most far-sighted, engaging and downright hard-working journalists in Scotland. He has spotted stories, uncovered scandals and written about them in a detailed and accessible way that leaves many in the dust.”

                      Eamonn O’Neill, director, MSc in investigative journalism, University of Strathclyde

“It’s truly refreshing to read a mainstream financial journalist/commentator who isn’t still in thrall to the people who caused this mess in the first place!”

Ian Fraser speaks truth to power. I applaud him for his accurate analysis”

Richard Murphy, Tax Research UK

“If you want to know what happened over the past week forget the Sunday papers — read @Ian_Fraser ‘s blog and site. Outstanding financial journalism without PR spin or party bias.”

Heather Burns, Idea15 Web Design

“Ian Fraser has written extensively about goings on in the HBOS corporate lending department. Given the hair-raising nature of so many of the stories that surround HBOS, it’s difficult to understand why it is only now that we have confirmation of some sort of regulatory enquiry.”

Paul Murphy, editor, FT Alphaville

“Ian Fraser’s articles on China were excellent. They provided a better guide to the opportunities — and the risks — of private equity investment in China than anything else I’ve read.”

“My compliments. China flies the flag is the best and most comprehensive piece on private equity in China I have ever seen. I shake your hand.”

Ian Fraser’s Sunday Times column on Edinburgh was spot on! What planet does City of Edinburgh Council live on? Do they ever go outside their offices? Do they ever try and cross the road or drive around Scotland’s embarrassing capital? I hope he keeps giving them a hard time — they deserve it!

David Watt, executive director, Institute of Directors Scotland
