Nina Hingorani-Crain

Non-Executive Director

Appointed to the Board in August 2015. She serves on the Audit and Nominations Committees.


A Chartered Accountant, Nina spent 5 years working for Ernst & Young in their Corporate Finance practice, where a number of her clients were building societies, before being recruited to join the former Financial Services Authority (“FSA”). In her 10 years working with the regulator she undertook a variety of roles, initially in international strategy representing the FSA globally alongside the IMF and World Bank. This was followed by management positions, as the Chairman’s Principal Private Secretary during the global financial crisis and subsequently as Chief of Staff leading the demerger of the FSA and the creation of the new Financial Conduct Authority (“FCA”). Whilst at the FCA, Nina also undertook a 6 month strategic secondment to Age UK to inform the regulator’s strategy of placing consumer needs at the heart of its mandate.

Skills and Experience

Nina has 20 years’ experience in the financial services sector. She brings a wide range of knowledge in conduct and consumer areas to the Board and combines her non-executive responsibilities with charitable work focused on children.

Nina graduated from King’s College London with an LLB Honours degree, and from the Sorbonne Paris with the French equivalent, she qualified as a Chartered Accountant with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales.
