Holly MackayFounder and CEO at Boring Money
Holly has worked in finance since 1999. She is a financial expert, a commentator on investment markets and the Founder and MD of independent consumer financial website, Boring Money. She passionately believes that we can explain things better, and that investments shouldn’t just be for “The Old Boys.”
Holly read Modern Languages at Oxford, specialising in Medieval French which obviously made her immediately highly employable. She went backpacking in Australia, worked in TV for a while and then decided that TV was boring but the stock market was awesomely interesting.
She held senior roles at Merrill Lynch, Aviva and Santander before setting up her first business, The Platforum, in 2008. She sold the business to Centaur Media and left in 2014, launching Boring Money in July 2015.
She likes translating financial gobbledygook into ‘real speak’ and trying to help people without PhDs in finance to make sensible decisions with minimum pain. Holly is a regular media commentator and has appeared on or contributed to the BBC, The Times, The Telegraph and The Mail on Sunday.
