Stop banks taking the biscuit


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

Did you know that banks take a 5% bite out of your money when you send it abroad? Most people don’t. That’s why we’re at Labour Party Conference in Manchester this week, talking to politicians and campaigners about how to make finance fairer. We’ve got a great panel together to discuss hidden charges on Monday. Details below. Title: Cut the C£$P: getting a better deal for consumers When: 9.30-10.30am, Monday 22nd September Where: TechCentral Marquee, Manchester Central (secure area) Speakers: Chair: James Daley, Fairer Finance Taavet Hinrikus, Co-founder, Wise Chris Leslie MP, Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury David Offenbach, Chair, Labour Finance and Industry Group Ed Rennie, Head of Virtue Programme, ResPublica Jessica Asato, Chair, Fabian Society Please do come along if you can. If you can’t, but you’d like to show your support, please tweet that it’s #timefortransparency at #lab14 so that the politicians see it.
