Becoming a Member of the Transparency Task Force

This web page provides a detailed response to the question: 

Why become a member of the Transparency Task Force?

First, please understand that TTF is a Certified Social Enterprise – we exist to make an impact, not to make a profit. However, whilst we don’t do our work for money, we do need money to do our work!

By supporting us through becoming a member, you’ll have the knowledge and satisfaction that you’re helping TTF to carry on its fight to fix what’s wrong with the financial services sector and the regulatory framework that is supposed to govern it. That’s a cause we believe to be both noble and necessary; and it’s a cause that we’re passionately committed to.

If you’re not already familiar with our wide range of activities, check out our manifesto and our Annual Reports, where you’ll see that we’re doing a great deal of worthwhile work to drive the kind of positive, progressive and purposeful reform that’s so desperately needed.

Hopefully, the above comments alone are enough to make you want to support the cause by becoming a member. If so, skip the table below and scroll to the bottom.

But if not, take a look at these further details about the benefits you would obtain by becoming a member:

Member Benefits



Associate Member

You’ll receive the Transparency Times, our weekly newsletter that provides details about our events, news, and much, much more. It goes to over 5,000 people in 21 countries.

Entitlement to attend our online symposia. We typically run several events a month and as a member, there’s no limit to how many you can attend. They are informative, insightful and participative.

Our events are also often rather edgy. That’s because we are not influenced by the commercial interests of financial sector sponsors, so we are free to deal with topics that other organisations won’t have the inclination (or courage) to. Furthermore, because we believe that “sunlight is the best disinfectant”, we use our events to “tell it as it is” regardless of how many inconvenient truths we are able to expose. 

Our previous online events are shown here: 2023, 2022, 2021, and 2020
