With the launch of Building Banking on Values, a new VoiceAmerica radio series I’m hosting that goes behind the scenes to tell the stories of the people, passion and positivity within the values-based banking and financing sector; I thought to introduce you to some of our guests. Listen to the show episodes right here!

Meet Brett Scott: Alternative Finance Explorer, Author and Campaigner

Brett gets involved in financial campaigning & alternative finance, blending experience in environmental & social movements, start-up business development, derivatives, blues music and economic anthropology. He’s done work on hedge funds, commodity markets, economic aspects of climate change, and socially responsible banking.

Brett wrote The Heretic’s Guide to Global Finance (published by Pluto Press). It’s endorsed by Bill McKibben of 350.org, Ha-Joon Chang of Cambridge University & Tony Greenham of the New Economics Foundation. He’s written for The Guardian, Wired Magazine, New Scientist, The Ecologist, The New Internationalist, openDemocracy and This Is Africa (Financial Times). Brett has also appeared on BBC, radio, Arte TV and various other places.

Brett is a Fellow at the WWF/ICAEW Finance Innovation Lab, an initiative drawing alternative finance peeps together. He is always keen to meet people pioneering new economic experiments. He was also a member of the start-up team for an intrepid new financial brokerage specialising in illiquid derivatives and securitised products, developing the business in the midst of the financial crisis. Brett spearheaded the creation of a property derivatives brokerage desk, as well as being involved in a variety of special projects and sales efforts with other exotic derivatives (e.g. inflation, longevity).

Back in the day Brett was also an academic. He was the 2006/2007 Magdalene Mandela Scholar at Cambridge University, working on issues related to economic crime, environmental sustainability geopolitics, and economic philosophy in international development. Brett was an analyst at a socio-economic policy institute working on the impact of globalisation on healthcare systems. He has a couple academic papers out, related to international development.
