Economic Update Webinar for Financial Services

Date: 21 October 2020
Time: 09:30 - 10:30


  • Summary

We are pleased to invite you to our Economic Update where we will look at the emerging macroeconomic trends and the outlook for the UK and the global economy.

The outlook remains challenging. The measures being implemented by policymakers worldwide to curb the spread of the infection is subjecting financial services businesses and economies to uncertainty and financial costs.

The global economy is also having to contend with head-winds from socio, economic and political events worldwide such as Brexit and the US-China trade war. Economic growth will eventually return as societies gradually reopen and vaccines emerge. Nonetheless, the economic damage from this pandemic will take a considerable time to repair.

The agenda will cover the following and their impact on financial services;

  • Global Economic Outlook  - with primary focus on the UK economy  
  • Monetary and fiscal policy response to the crisis – government debt and inflation
  • An assessment of the downside risks to sustainable economic growth and macro financial stability
