The CTI is effectively the governance committee consisting of three distinguished experts in finance and regulation. It is responsible for safeguarding the independence of Finance Watch’s advocacy and avoiding conflicts of interest concerning membership and funding. It must approve all applications for membership of Finance Watch, and all offers of funding above €10,000.

Professor Robin Jarvis said: “I am very pleased to be making a contribution to Finance Watch, working for a financial system that allocates capital to productive use through fair and open markets in a transparent and sustainable manner, without causing detriment to society at large.”  

This is not the first time Professor Robin Jarvis has achieved such a prestigious honour. In 2013, he was awarded the British Accounting and Finance Association (BAFA) Lifetime Achievement Award for his contribution to the advancement of the accounting and finance academic community.
