“Credit unions are a really important way to support people in planning and managing their financial needs in a co-operative, affordable and responsible way”
Its co-operation at its most basic level – affordable, accessible loans when you need them, based on a pooling of savings deposits from the rest of the members, with no shareholders to suck money out of the system.
Joining the Board was a good way for me to use my experience of finance and the Co-op movement to put something back.
I’ve worked for Co-op Insurance for nearly 23 years, initially training and qualifying as an actuary then in various actuarial and general product management roles. Since 2013, I’ve been Chief Actuary, with responsibility for reserving, capital, reinsurance and data and I’m currently the treasurer of The Co-op Credit Union.
