About the Speaker

Clare Payne is a leading voice on ethics in society. She tracks trends and writes about their implications in her monthly ‘Ethical Lens’ column in The Australian Financial Review BOSS Magazine. She is the author of two books, ‘A Matter of Trust – The Practice of Ethics in Finance’ and ‘One – Valuing the Single Life’ (Melbourne University Publishing).

In 2007, prior to the global financial crisis, Clare’s paper titled ‘Ethics or Bust’ was awarded the inaugural Ethics & Trust in Finance Prize by the Observatoire de la Finance, Geneva.

In 2010, Clare led the establishment of The Banking and Finance Oath (The BFO), a Hippocratic-type oath for those working in banking and finance. Clare now works with Dr. Bronwyn King, founder of Tobacco Free Portfolios, on tobacco-free investment in what she sees as the ultimate ethical case study for the finance sector.

Clare is a former employment lawyer and an accomplished marathon swimmer. She was recognised as a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader in 2014 and as an Australian 100 Women of Influence in 2016.
