Event description

Description

The Financial Services Group of Livery Companies is pleased to announce the inaugural FSG Lecture in memory of its Founding Convenor Jeremy Goford, Past Master Actuary.

The distinct role of financial, professional and business services in the economics of global cities appears to matter as never before. But is it transient?

The distinguished lecturer for this landmark event is Alderman Professor Michael Mainelli.

In this lecture, Michael will draw from decades of research into the mapping, modelling and economics of cities, along with empirical data, such as his firm’s Global Financial Centres Index.

In what will inevitably be a seminal lecture, he intends to challenge some of the conventional assumptions about how cities form and grow, illustrate how current thinkers are developing new theories around scale change, information theory, transactional intensity and competition.

Given the importance of financial services to London, he will advance some thoughts on the current role of financial services, explore some future scenarios and suggest policies that should be advantageous for London, particularly with an impending Brexit.

The lecture is kindly sponsored by CPotential* to whom a donation will be made by the FSG.

*CPotential is the new name for The London Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy. We help children with cerebral palsy to achieve their potential and live as independently as possible. We use the principles of Conductive Education including speech, language and music therapy to help each child to develop their mobility, motor, sensory and communication skills. Our Milkshake Tree Appeal is raising money to create a new centre in London.
