Introducing our new Senior Fellow: Christine Berry

We’re excited to introduce Christine Berry – the latest pioneering financial changemaker to become a Senior Fellow of the Finance Innovation Lab.

Senior Fellows are a group of leaders who have made a significant contribution to building a more democratic, responsible and fair financial system, and who have shown consistent support for the Lab’s work and programmes. The group includes Diane Burridge, CEO of Moneyline, Tony Greenham, Executive Director of South West Mutual, and Bryan Zhang, co-founder and Executive Director of the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance.

Christine is an independent researcher and writer on economic systems change, with a particular focus on the financial system. She writes regularly for publications including The Independent, The Guardian, Red Pepper, Tribune and openDemocracy, and her work has been profiled in The Economist, Evening Standard and Financial Times. Previously, she was Principal Director of Policy and Government at the New Economics Foundation and Head of Policy and Research at ShareAction. She is a Trustee of Rethinking Economics, a Fellow of the Next System Project and a Commissioning Editor of Renewal journal.

Christine has worked with the Lab for many years, as a member of the Transforming Finance Network of civil society organisations and then as a founding trustee until 2018. She also co-wrote our landmark report The Regulatory Compass. We’re excited to welcome her to our Senior Fellows group and look forward to collaborating to build a financial system that serves people and planet.
