IC4 in conjunction with DCU Business School will host the 4th DCU Quarterly Symposium on Capital Markets and Fintech on Friday 8th December which will focus on the potential impacts of Brexit on the Irish Economy.
The UK decision to leave the EU has opened a period of high uncertainty for business decision makers and has the potential to have significant implications for the European financial sector. With the European financial hub – London – outside the EU, major financial services companies are now looking for a new home within the European Economic Area. Ireland is arguably well placed to benefit from Brexit but it has to overcome undeniable challenges in order to exploit such an opportunity.
DCU Business School recently joined the European Capital Markets Cooperative Research Centre, a foundation to promote and facilitate capital markets research amongst research institutions and industry, and has launched the Finance Innovation Group in order to support the Irish financial services industry and to explore the potential impacts if technology innovation on businesses.
At this event, industry and academic speakers will provide insights into the current alternative finance landscape in Ireland and will alternate with networking breaks to support interaction and discussions among attendees.
