Power Lunch with Stephen Hammond MP

  • Portcullis House Bridge Street London, SW1A 2LW (map)

Brexit and The Future of Fintech

This event will consider:

  • The state of the UK’s fintech scene;
  • The key challenges of Brexit for fintech firms;
  • The consequences of losing passporting.

Power Lunches are small, informal affairs. We restrict them to around 18 people, but people of influence. We start at 12:45pm for 1pm, and finish no later than 2:15pm. Our principal guest kicks off with roughly 10 minutes of introductory remarks; sandwiches, fruit and coffee are served, and ideas are exchanged. The event will be under Chatham House Rules, but I’ll be writing an article for afterwards for Forbes on the subject, and I’ll follow up with attendees for their views via email.
