Biography

Rachel Schneider is Senior Vice President of Insights & Analytics for the Center for Financial Services Innovation. Under her leadership, CFSI produces independent, data-driven consumer and industry research and advice, including the Compass Principles - which are aspirational standards for excellence in the delivery of consumer financial services. These analyses inspire financial services providers, policymakers and others to stretch to create financial services that are a force for good in people's lives, and offer actionable guidance about how to design and deliver services that will increase consumer financial health.

Rachel is a Principle Investigator on the U.S. Financial Diaries research study, a ground-breaking project in partnership with the Financial Access Initiative at New York University that is collecting highly detailed data about how more than 200 households save, spend, borrow and plan their financial lives over the course of about a year. She speaks and writes broadly about consumer finance issues, always offering her frank assessment of the financial challenges facing the majority of Americans. Rachel began her career as an investment banker at Merrill Lynch & Co., though she hails her commitment to the potential for innovative finance to solve major social problems from her days as a VISTA Volunteer (now AmeriCorps). She holds a J.D./M.B.A. from the University of Chicago, and a B.A. from UC Berkeley.
