Her expertise and areas of work cover investments, charities, democracy and political processes; as well as social justice.
Post the financial crisis, Gina and her husband Alan founded SCM Direct as a modern disruptive digital wealth manager centred on 100% transparency, low cost and putting clients first.
In 2012 Gina co-launched the True and Fair Campaign, calling for an end to rip offs and dubious practices in the investment and pension industry. Gina’s campaigning has resulted in contributions to three EU Directives – Article 24 of MiFID II, PRIPS and The Shareholder Directive.
In 2016, Gina successfully challenged the UK Government over its authority to implement Brexit, winning in both the High Court and Supreme Court in what is hailed as the most important British constitutional case since the 1700s.
Gina continues a ‘democracy and legality’ watching brief of the UK Government’s activities as Brexit is progressed. In September 2018 she launched the End the Chaos! campaign aimed at promoting the final decision being taken by the people rather than Parliament to break the political deadlock, provide an open source platform for unbiased, simple to understand information so people are able to make an informed choice should the decision come back to them, and explain unanswered questions about the European Union and the UK’s membership.
At the end of August 2018, Gina published her first book ‘Rise: Life Lessons in Speaking Out, Standing Tall & Leading the Way’
In 2019 Gina challenged the UK government for the second time. It led to the landmark Supreme Court decision which saw Boris Johnson’s prorogation of Parliament ruled unlawful.
