About & Requests

Jane Portas

Jane is a Chartered Accountant with 30 years' financial services advisory experience as a partner in two of the “big 4” accountancy and professional services firms.

In 2016 she co-founded Insuring Women’s Futures, a market-wide, professional programme hosted by the Chartered Insurance Institute to improve women’s and society’s financial resilience.

She is the author of The Risks in Life Report Series, a body of work using risk management techniques to analyse people’s Financial Life Journeys, and to assess the impact of Risks in Life on financial wellbeing through the life course.

This led her to create 6 Moments That Matter, to identify steps individuals may take, as well as strategies, policies and practices the third sector, employers, businesses, professional and trade bodies, financial services organisations, regulators and policymakers may adopt to improve fairer financial futures.

Jane now has a portfolio career, is a regular public speaker and sits as a non-executive on various boards and committees. She works purposefully with charities on a pro bono basis, and with businesses and organisations involved in creating change, to further inclusive approaches to improve financial futures.

Her recent and current work includes Pensions & Divorce in Later Life, the impact of Economic Abuse on lifelong financial security and Black people’s Financial Life Journeys.

Jane is a member of Women’s Business Council and the Global Advisory Board of The ISC Group, a global network of female insurance business leaders.

Her work to improve financial futures has been widely recognised and has received a series of awards.
