We are pleased to announce that UK Finance are supporting City Week this year. This event is the leading gathering for the international financial services community, taking place in London on 23 and 24 April.

The Week brings together industry leaders and policy makers from around the globe to consider the future of global financial markets and London, in particular. It consists of two days of cutting-edge conferences, workshops, social events and networking opportunities, with other satellite events being held later during the week.

Over 40 speakers have been confirmed, all of whom are leaders in their fields, such as the Rt Hon Dr Liam Fox MP, Secretary of State for International Trade, Lord Blackwell, Chairman of Lloyds Banking Group and Dame Inga Beale, CEO of Lloyd’s.

Topics will include the UK’s international financial services strategy, what the UK needs in a FS Chapter of a Free Trade Agreement with the EU, usage of the One Belt One Road as a vehicle for developing the China-UK relationship and a look at developments in the ‘special relationship’ between the US and the UK. Additional satellite events will be held later in the week.

As part of our support agreement, UK Finance members can receive a 30% discount with the code CITY8UKF, reducing the delegate fee to £346.50 for one day or £626.50 for both days.
