Serena grew up in the Midlands and studied in the North, before coming to London to work in insurance supporting their Exec teams and helping to develop their graduate talent. She started at True in 2016.
I wanted to be a part of building something new in a company that shared similar ideals to myself. True sparked more than that for me though; it is unique, inspiring and incredibly genuine. I knew instantly from meeting Matt and Paul that I a) liked them and b) wanted to grow with them on the True journey.
I spend time getting to understand our people better and I help to draw a lot of dots together.
I love the autonomy, and the fast-paced, big-thinking environment. I am proud to be working with people, and for a business that I care about — both very important to me. We have managed to foster such a stimulating, exciting, friendly and supportive culture at True, it’s quite special.

My parents — I am fortunate enough to have a very close-knit family and we remain a solid unit. I always remember how hard my parents worked and supported me even through some tough decisions and I have always wanted to make them proud. They gave me freedom but also kept me grounded — I think a lot of where I am today has been about working things out for myself.
Serena’s expertise at True:
Serena heads up True’s quest to find the best talent that is the special sauce that makes up True’s friendly culture. Serena also leads the charge on our charitable activities, our B Corporation Certification as well as a great number of operational projects.
This October, our team was finally able to meet in person for a few fun-filled days of getting to know each other — and our new brand — a little better.
True has achieved B Corporation certification – the gold standard in balancing people, purpose and profit. True is just one of a few thousand companies worldwide to become a certified B Corporation and just one of a very small number of investment firms.
