Flora Coleman has been at Wise as their global Head of Government Relations for nearly four years. This follows a decade of senior political advisory work, including nearly three years as a Special Adviser on legislation to the UK Government. Flora has worked most policy areas but has a particular specialism in European politics and retail financial services. During her career she has helped coordinate and participated in international social action projects in Croatia, Turkey, Bangladesh, and Bosnia.
She played a key role in delivering the Cross-Border payments regulation, pushing for global transparency and to secure a law in the EU which means that from April 2020 the 500 million people in the EU will know what it costs to make an international payment.
In 2019 she was nominated as the fourth most inspirational woman in UK public affairs, and one of the top five standout female policy makers and regulatory experts in fintech.
