Holly Mackay's Biography

Holly Mackay is a financial expert, media commentator, speaker and Founder and Managing Director of the firm – Boring Money.

Holly is passionate about explaining investing in an accessible way, cutting through the financial jargon to help individuals understand investments and to make better decisions.  She also works with financial firms so they are aware of the customer’s perspective in all that they do.  She advocates for investment firms to make better products and is a champion for clear communication, that real people understand.  She is known for her clarity, empathy and humour as well as her sound research and investment insights.

With the younger generation taking more interest in their financial future and investments, particularly in the world of sustainability, Holly tackles dense topics with clarity and in an engaging way.

With a growing media profile, Holly recently joined Vernon Kay on Aviva’s new podcast Parenting Past the Pandemic and has spoken at the FT Weekend Festival, FTAdviser ESG Masterclass and the AI Conference. Holly has also contributed to the BBC, The Times, The Telegraph, Investment Week and The Mail on Sunday.  She has also spoken at investment events for Informa, Morningstar,

Holly is incredibly relatable, tackling dense topics with wit using language people actually understand. She is also an expert at talking about business to the corporate world without boring people to tears. Whether it is as a conference chair to asking the hard questions in a fireside chat, or giving a keynote talk, Holly’s approach is fearless, funny and firmly evidence based.

After earning a degree at Oxford, Holly went backpacking in Australia, where she worked in TV for a while and then decided that TV was boring but the stock market was awesomely interesting. Returning home, Holly held senior roles at Merrill Lynch, Aviva and Santander before setting up her first business, The Platforum, in 2008. She sold the business to Centaur Media in 2014, and launched Boring Money in July 2015
