US market implications of a possible Brexit
Wednesday, 27 April
From 7.00 pm - 9.00 pm - you are welcome to join us for registration and drinks from 6.30pm
On 23 June, the UK will vote in a referendum to stay or leave the European Union. A UK matter only? Think again. US businesses may actually see some significant implications. If you want to find out how a possible Brexit may affect your professional environment, join us!
Whilst some experts warn that any action that leads to the severing of UK-EU ties carries significant risks to the bottom line of corporate America, leave campaigners say that outside of the EU, the UK will be able to negotiate better trade deals with the US. Either way, the shadow of Brexit looms large over financial markets with investors, companies and the government unable to make cast iron decisions until the result is known. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen joined G20 finance ministers in warning that Britain’s possible exit from the European Union could pose a risk to the world economy.
The discussion is likely to take into account wider implications beyond the financial markets and the US.
Our panel consists of alumni experts:
Mark Howard, Managing Director and Head of US Credit Strategy at BNP Paribas (Chair)
James Macey, Senior Vice President and Portfolio Manager at Franklin Templeton Investments
Massimo Cutuli, Senior Risk Manager and Global Head of Derivatives Clearing Risk at Goldman Sachs
Guest expert Yvonne Bendinger-Rothschild, Executive Director at the European- American Chamber of Commerce
Other panellists to be confirmed
This panel discussion will be of interest to alumni active in a broad range of professional areas and personal interests.
