George Carter

former financial services actuary and volunteer, Durham Cathedral

George has spent over 20 years working in the financial services industry as an actuary both in the UK and New Zealand.  His particular area of interest was the management and oversight of the investment portfolios for large institutions with a focus on pension schemes, insurance assets and philanthropic trusts.  A particular high point was the development of a social fund designed specifically to donate all proceeds to the work of reducing modern slavery and trafficking.

Since returning to Durham, George has got involved in local politics as a member of the Conservative party and volunteers for Durham Cathedral and a number of other local initiatives.
