Positive Money, Fran Boait

As Executive Director of Positive Money, Fran has led the UK and international expansion of Positive Money, a non-profit think tank, which campaigns for systemic change of the money and banking system to support a fair, sustainable, and democratic economy. Positive Money Europe launched in 2018, and Positive Money US will hopefully be set up in 2020. Committed to wider financial reform, she is also a Director of Finance Watch, a Senior Fellow at the Finance Innovation Lab, and an Advisor to Transparency Taskforce. Fran was also recognised as one of the most ‘Inspirational Women in the City’ 2017 by Brummell Magazine. Fran has an MSci and PhD from Cambridge University in Geophysics.

As an organisation, Positive Money campaigns for a money and banking system that enables a fair, sustainable and democratic economy. They work with economists, academics, journalists, policy makers and the public to bring about a fairer money and banking system. They are building a growing movement of students, grandparents, economists, activists, politicians, journalists, dreamers and realists – all fighting for a fairer, greener, safer economy.
