Gina Miller Education
She studied law at the Polytechnic of East London (now the University of East London). Unfortunately, she left without completing her finals because her parents wanted her in Guyana. Miller says she was brutally attacked while at law school and that some of her attackers were fellow students. The attack caused her to give up her degree course. She stated “Well, I was attacked because I was not behaving like I was supposed to be behaving… I was being too western.” The attackers were Asian, and they had mistaken her for being Indian.
She later joined the University of East London where she obtained a degree in marketing and an MSc in human resource management. In 2017, she received an honorary Doctorate of Laws from the University of East London, 30 years after when she had attended as a student.
She owned a property photographic laboratory in 1987, before becoming a marketing and event manager at BMW Fleet Division in 1990. Miller started a specialist financial services marketing agency in 1992 and launched the Senate investment conference program in 1996. She became a marketing consultant in 2006. In February 2009, Miller co-founded the investment firm SCM Private (now SCM Direct) with her husband Alan Miller. She has been a leading campaigner against hidden charges in pensions and investment and what she has described as “flagrant mis-selling within the asset management market”. She set up Miller Philanthropy (rebranded to the True and Fair Foundation) in 2009 (which closed in 2019), and established MoneyShe.com in 2014, as a female-focused investment brand.
True and Fair Foundation
In 2009, she set up the True and Fair Foundation. The Foundation was a registered charity under English law and was removed from the register in July 2019. It aimed at increasing philanthropy and the common good in an era of growing inequality, social fragmentation, and small state funding. It also aimed to encourage those who have been successful to give back to the communities that afforded them their success. The Foundation again lessens the burden of giving for donors and philanthropists who wish to give smarter and in an efficient and transparent manner but may be time-poor.
