Legatum Institute launches the Legatum Financial Services Forum

Thursday, 13 July 2017

The Legatum Institute is delighted to announce the incorporation of the Financial Services Negotiation Forum (FSNF) to create the Legatum Financial Services Forum.

The new body, led by our Director of Economic Prosperity Studies Shanker Singham, will strengthen the work of the Legatum Institute’s Special Trade Commission (STC), providing independent, expert analysis on the future of financial services policy.

The Legatum Financial Services Forum will build on the extensive research of both organisations to maximise the opportunities and minimise the disruption to financial services that result from Brexit, and bring people together from all sides of the debate.

Commenting on the creation of the Legatum Financial Services Forum, the Institute’s CEO, Philippa Stroud, said:

“The Legatum Institute is committed to positioning the United Kingdom for the best possible Brexit, one that is open and attracts the world’s best talent, where trading ties are free and where entrepreneurs can start new businesses, creating opportunities for others towards a new social contract: one that improves the life chances of the poor and vulnerable and ensures the young are able to seize the opportunities of tomorrow. Today marks an important step forward in this direction. Drawing upon the experience and expertise of the FSNF brings a broad and important constituency to the conversation around a winning Brexit, ensuring Britain’s financial services industry is secure and positioned for growth.”
