Eyeing European Expansion

Strategies for Business Growth on Both Sides of the Channel

London |
Speakers include:

Overview

Brexit will cause an inevitable rethink of the location strategies of companies in the UK, many of whom will need to shore up their presence and find a stronger foothold in Europe once the UK leaves the European Union. Access to the single market and EU passporting rights for financial services firms can no longer be taken as a given, nor can the immigration status of key European talent currently working in London.

Thinking ahead and exploring all possible options is the sensible approach. But what considerations should be made as part of this strategic reassessment of UK and European operations? How are companies in the insurance, professional services, and technology sectors, among others, preparing for a post-Brexit business landscape and shoring up their access to European consumers, customers and partners? Which locations on the continent offer competitive advantages for these essential new expansion plans?

Financial Times Live and fDi Magazine are delighted to be partnering with the city of Cologne to host a private editorial lunch to discuss the challenges and opportunities UK and multinational companies face in expanding in Europe during a time of such uncertainty. The Cologne delegation will be led by Mayor Henriette Reker.
