Freelance editor and journalist
"This is a truly ground-breaking initiative, and one that I’m very excited to be involved in. The Gulf is a part of the world where there has been very little transparency in financial services or scrutiny over how fair consumers are treated when it comes to all things financial. We aim to empower our cashy community – to get them a better deal and help them shape their financial future. With the global economy largely on its knees, there’s never been a better time to take control."
