Financial Transparency with Andy Agathangelou of The Transparency Task Force
Andy is the Founder of the Transparency Task Force (TTF) the collaborative, campaigning community dedicated to driving positive, progressive and purposeful reform of the world’s financial services industry, through harnessing the transformational power of transparency.
Core to The TTF’s mission is to “encourage ongoing reform of the financial services sector, so that it serves society better” The TTF’s vision is “to create a large and highly respected international institution that helps ensure consumers are treated fairly by the financial services sector”.
In just 5 years the TTF has grown to over 2,500 volunteer members around the world who are organised and mobilised into subject-specific Groups.
It has spawned a book and numerous other artefacts – all of which can be viewed and downloaded from their website (see below).
Andy is also a Governor of the UK’s Pensions Policy Institute and A Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts which is an international body focused on bringing 21 st Century enlightenment into commerce. He is a former Head of Strategic Relationships at Close Brothers Asset Management.
Andy is a serial community-builder; he builds communities to solve sector-wide problems – he previously helped to initiate and lead the creation of Friends of Automatic Enrolment and the Association of Member Nominated Trustees; two other successful financial services communities.
He lives in the UK but frequently speaks about the need for greater transparency and finance reform at conferences and symposia around the world.
