My guest on the podcast today is Sarah Porretta, Strategy and Insights Director at The Money and Pensions Service (MaPS).
Prior to MaPS, Sarah was Head of Financial Inclusion and Education at Lloyds Banking Group, where she created a group-wide, multi-brand strategy for financial inclusion and education. During this time, she also chaired UK Finance’s Financial Inclusion and Capability Forum.
