The shockwaves from the global financial crisis of 2008 continue to be felt around the world and the banking profession has rarely be held in such low regard, but there are some financial institutions that have benefited from the crisis. Chris Laidlaw talks to Kristen Christian, the founder of Transfer Your Bank Day which has seen six million Americans switch from mainstream to community-owned banks; and Peter Blom, the CEO of Trodos Bank and the chair of the Global Alliance for Banking on Values, talks to Jeremy Rose about the idea of sustainable banking.
