Banks and brokers shouldn’t be allowed to take big bites out of your money without telling you about it.

Did you know that banks and brokers take a 5% bite out of your money when you send it abroad? Most people don’t. That’s why we’re at the Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham this week, talking to politicians and campaigners about how to make finance fairer. Last week we were at Labour Party Conference to explain about hidden charges in financial services. Now we're at the Conservative Conference to tell politicians how financial technology can lead a new, fairer finance. We’ve got a great panel together to discuss hidden charges on Monday. Details below.
