Gina Miller

Bloomberg described Gina Miller as an 'Establishment Wrecking Ball' but her drive for transparency, scrutiny and integrity is about reform, not wrecking. Her areas have been in the areas of investment, charities, democratic and political processes. As a passionate believer in respectful capitalism, Gina believes we all have a civic duty to be actively alert to the challenges of contemporary issues facing businesses, politics and wider society.

Post the financial crisis, Gina and her husband Alan founded SCM Direct as a modern disruptive digital wealth management company centred on 100% transparency, low cost and investing with ethics.

In 2012 Gina launched a transparency initiative, the True and Fair Campaign, calling for an end to rip offs and dubious practices in the UK investment and pension industry, as well as a Code of Ethics. Gina's work through this campaign has resulted in contributions to three EU Directives which will result in over 500m consumers across Europe benefitting from enhanced consumer protection from 2018.

Through her True and Fair Foundation Gia supports dynamic small charities, works with donors on smarter giving and campaigns for greater transparency and scrutiny in the charity sector.

In 2016, Gina successfully challenged the Government over its authority to implement Brexit, winning in both the High Court and Supreme Court. In 2017 Gina challenged the legality of the £1 billion payment to Northern Ireland for the 10 DUP votes and continues a 'democracy and legality' watching brief of the UK Government's activities.

As a result of her campaigning and business achievements, Gina was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Law in October 2017.
