The Future Group 2022

We are very pleased to announce our Future Group members for 2022.


Established in September 2017, The Future Group is Christie & Co and Christie Finance’s junior board. It was created to unite a group of like-minded employees who are all driven to ensure this is the best place to work.

Throughout each year, The Future Group’s members champion a range of initiatives focussed on topics like sustainability, employee wellbeing, and client experience in order to contribute to the growth of the company and to help cultivate a happy, healthy and motivated workforce.

Some of the initiatives The Future Group has been involved in over recent years:

  • Armed all employees with access to the on-demand mental health support platform, PLUMM
  • Established a virtual Seminar Series – an ongoing series of informative webinars with inspiring guest speakers, including Sara Chandran from Fresh and Fearless, Joe Ganley from the Bank of England, and Grant Sheldon who is an inspirational tri-athlete.
  • Introduced glass milk bottles and improved the company’s recycling policy
