Trading through uncertainty

By Drees & Sommer | April 3, 2018

It’s not about keeping pace in times of change. It’s about succeeding and out thinking your competition. Let us focus on opportunities we can generate out of all the financial, commercial and social challenges caused by the British referendum. BREXIT creates a perfect storm and allows multiple opportunities for several hotspots in the UK and on the continent! Let’s make the most of it creating opportunities together!

This international cross border dialogue is organised by Drees & Sommer SE in conjunction with Enterprise Ireland and will discuss the following questions and topics:

  • What does BREXIT mean for the finance and real estate industry in the UK and on the continent?  What should be done in this period of uncertainty and how can funds perform robustly and best withstand volatility?  
  • To what extent can EU institutions continue to provide financial services to clients located in the UK; and to what extent can UK institutions continue to provide financial services to clients located in the EU?
  • What does digitalization, incl. cloud computing and fintech solutions, mean for the finance industry? What plans are being prepared now by mayor banks, funders and developers for post 2020?
