‘The impact of capital markets on people’s everyday lives’ Policy breakfast series
We think this is our most important report yet: we set out to analyse the relevance of capital markets to people’s everyday lives in the form of a report on the role that capital markets play in supporting the economy of the North West of England. While the report is focused on the North West, it could be about the impact of the capital markets in any region: in American parlance, it’s about bridging the gap between Wall St and Main St.
Our analysis looks beyond the important role that banking and finance plays as a significant employer in the region and focuses on the role capital markets play in helping finance companies that are based in or operating in the region, the role it plays in managing people’s pensions, and in supporting everyday business.
The report (which we expect to publish by the end of June) shows that what goes in ‘the City’ is far more relevant to a region like the North West than many people – both in the region and in the City – might expect and outlines a more concrete and constructive way of making the case to policymakers of what the industry does. It’s involved a huge amount of work over the past nine months and we’re very grateful to Barclays for supporting it.
The audience will be heads of policy and government affairs in Europe and senior policy execs.
