Kingston Smith

Kingston Smith debate – Is it the end of the (business) world as we know it?

Brexit negotiations are fully underway and Theresa May has declared that the UK and EU “must step forward together”. However we can’t ignore that large corporates and regulatory bodies are reconsidering their physical presence in our capital.

The European Medicines Agency is relocating to Amsterdam. Perhaps more concerning are the potential relocations of UK jobs in Deutsche Bank, UBS, Goldman Sachs, and drinks super-giant Diageo that have dominated the headlines. With Brexit threatening to affect the entire EU economy and in turn, the world economy is this the end of the (business) world as we know it?

This latest in our debate series will address the issue of the world’s changing economy and Brexit’s part in this. Returning Chair Sir Michael Snyder, former Kingston Smith Senior Partner and elected Member of the City of London, will challenge our impressive panel, as well as providing his own insight.

We welcome our panel:

Craig Donaldson, CEO of Metro Bank, the UK’s first new high street bank for over 100 years.

Jeremy Browne, former Minister of State and the City of London’s current Special Representative on Europe

Jeff Singer, Partner at ILV Silver, specialists in transaction, audit, tax, legal and due diligence services for business acquisitions and investments in Spain.
