Bobby St.John – Faith in Finance
Richard: Hello, I’m Richard Sargeant, and this is Faith in Action, a podcast to discuss how faith affects the way we live and work today.
Faith and finance have never been easy bedfellows, ever since Jesus threw the money changers out of the temple, yet Christians are at work in the city as much as in the hospital wards and the food banks. However, amid the newspaper headlines of bankers rigging interest rates, dodging tax, and receiving enormous bonuses, it might be hard to see the hand of God at work.
With me to explore the role of faith in finance is Bobby St. John, a banker with over 30 years of experience. He now works as a partner at Centrus Advisors in London. Bobby, thank you for joining me. Why does finance have such a bad reputation?
