Making sense of an uncertain world: a macro view of Brexit and beyond

 

The Finance Foundation is delighted to host our next thought leadership event supported by AIG Europe Ltd

 

 Tuesday 21st November 2017

6pm – 8pm

 

What are the issues and challenges for the UK economy as Brexit approaches and how might these be affected by decisions made or not made over the coming months? How robust is the rest of the EU moving forward and what will be required to adjust to the impact of Brexit on their own economies? What role might the US play in shaping post-Brexit outcomes?

Martin Wolf, Chief Economics Commentator at the Financial Times, will be presenting his views on the macroeconomic outlook as Brexit approaches, and the scenarios we may need to prepare for. He will be joined by Eric Lonergan, macro hedge fund manager, economist and writer, who will respond to Martin, providing his own take on the Brexit challenges ahead.

This will be followed by a moderated Q&A.

This event will be hosted in the Council Room at One Birdcage Walk, Westminster, London SW1H 9JJ.

Registration is from 6pm and the event will begin promptly at 6.30pm, with drinks served after the formal proceedings and the evening ending at approximately 8pm. Please click here for directions.
