The Jetram Partnership is a specialist UK financial services consultancy and think-tank focussing on risk, governance and regulation. In the wake of the worst financial crisis in almost a century, our mission is to make finance serve the needs of society, not the other way around.
We are a small family business based near London with two primary members of staff. While we do not claim any influence over government policy, we have a track-record of anticipating future trends before they enter the mainstream. From the damaging effects of pension liberalisation and the difficulties of incorporating financial services into a Brexit deal to the Bank of England’s renewed focus on financial education, we have consistently provided thought-leadership in our areas of interest.
