Description

We are delighted to announce that the British Irish Chamber of Commerce, and our sponsors KPMG and Ulster Bank, have come together to develop a high-level policy series ‘#Agenda2018 – Business, Politics and Brexit’ to address the various challenges and opportunities that Brexit has brought about for business interests in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Brexit fast-forwards the need to reflect on and plan for the future of international financial services both within and without the European Union.

For Ireland, with its strong position in asset management, its desire to increase the size of its Fintech industry and the need to expand the range of financial services activities carried on in the State, there are significant opportunities but also significant challenges. In part the new Capital Markets Union (CMU) now being developed by the EU will bring those matters into focus.

For the UK, which has the largest capital markets in Europe, the challenge is to maintain that position outside the new CMU.

For both Ireland and the UK the outcome for their financial services industries will have a significant bearing on their respective economies.

The Keynote Address will be delivered by Minister Michael D’Arcy, TD, Minister for Financial Services and Insurance.

This breakfast seminar entitled ‘International Financial Services in Ireland and the UK in a post-Brexit world’ will focus on 4 specific topics:

1. The future of international financial services in light of Brexit

2. The challenges and opportunities the Capital Markets Union will present across Europe

3. Irish Government Strategy for financial services

4. Basis for market access to EU / UK financial services post-Brexit.

Typically, attendees at our seminars are C-suite executives, stakeholders and Chamber members numbering more than 100, including Ministers from Ireland and the United Kingdom, Members of the Oireachtas, Westminster and devolved institutions, senior civil servants, regulators and state agencies. Our attendees represent business interests across the breadth and width of United Kingdom and Ireland.
