Advantage Austria supports City Week 2017

Now in its seventh year, City Week is an important gathering of the international financial services community. It brings together policy makers and senior industry representatives from around the globe to consider together the future of financial markets and London, in particular. It consists of two days of cutting-edge conferences, seminars and networking opportunities, with other satellite events being held earlier during the week.

Last year’s event saw some 700 participants from over 55 countries attend over the course of the two days, and more than 80% of them rated the event either excellent or very good. You can see some of the highlights in a short video here .

This year’s gathering, CW2017, is being held against the backdrop of two highly significant changes in the geopolitical context: the UK's exit from the EU and the new political direction being taken by President Trump in the U.S.

This challenging context will make for some very interesting discussions at City Week 2017. Key topics include:

  • FSTIB Roundtable: Priorities for the UK’s International Financial Services Strategy
  • Are we entering a post-globalisation, post-free trade era?
  • BREXIT - consequences and opportunities
  • Towards global regulatory equivalence
  • Culture, individual responsibility and corporate governance
  • Creating a Global FinTech Ecosystem
  • Artificial intelligence - the shape of things to come
  • Cybercrime: Innovative defences to innovative attacks
  • The UK as a hub for global trade and investment
  • Opportunities for the FS industry flowing from the opening of China's FS markets and the country's global expansion
  • Building on the India UK Financial Partnership
  • Potential for trade deals with Commonwealth countries
  • Global infrastructure opportunities and the creation of the new Infrastructure Exports Leadership Forum
  • Taking green finance global
  • Islamic finance - establishing a western hub to facilitate growth in Sharia-compliant financial services
