Frances Coppola worked in banking for 17 years as a business analyst and project manager, running business and systems projects for (among others) RBS, Nat West, HSBC, Midland Bank and SBC Warburg (now UBS). Her banking experience encompasses retail and investment banking, front office, operations and settlement, but her particular area of expertise is financial control and risk management. She is particularly proud of the fact that RBS still produces its financial and regulatory reporting using a group consolidation system that she designed.
Frances is now a writer and commentator on banking, finance and economics. Her blog Coppola Comment is widely read and her writing has featured on the Financial Times, City AM, The Economist. The Guardian and a range of online publications. She also writes for the online magazine Pieria and occasionally for the ICAEW, and she is a frequent commentator on banking matters for the BBC.
Frances has an MBA from Cass Business School with a specialism in finance and risk management. And since financial people can be creative too, Frances is also a professional singer and singing teacher. She has a B.Mus from London University and is an Associate of the Royal College of Music. She also has two teenage children and not much time to do the garden any more!
