Professor Martin Parker (pictured), of the University of Leicester’s School of Management will argue that supporting smaller banks could help the UK recover from the current financial crisis.

He will explain why backing “mutual” institutions, such as credit unions, small building societies, ethical and community banks should be considered a viable alternative to pouring millions into “too big to fail” big banks.

Professor Parker, a specialist in organisation and culture, will give his views at a House of Commons event exploring “The Role of Mutuals in Retail Financial Services” from 9am to 10.30am on Tuesday, June 4.
