Bank of England to speak at two key London events

ICAEW members have an exclusive opportunity to hear from the Bank of England’s agents for Greater London on what they see happening in the London and UK economy in the future.

October 2019

The ICAEW London and East regional team have arranged two events with the Bank of England, where attendees will be able to hear the latest thinking for the Bank’s agents for Greater London.

The first will be held in Orpington on 23 October. Hosted by Metro Bank, we will hear from Lai Wah Co, the Bank of England Deputy Agent for Greater London. She will give a presentation focused on the economic forecast the Bank has for South East London.

We will also hear from chartered accountants and financial adviser Kreston Reeves. Anne Dwyer, Kreston Reeves’ audit and assurance partner and head of property and construction, will give a presentation on what the Bank’s forecast means for companies and how this relates to ICAEW’s Business Confidence Monitor (BCM). The BCM gives an indication of the overall direction of the economy, what is driving change and highlights the key concerns of UK.

The second will be held on 6 December at Chartered Accountants’ Hall. Predicting that we will be in the wake of Brexit, those attending will gain insight into the projection of London’s economy.

Rob Elder, the Bank of England’s Agent for Greater London, will look at the Bank’s economic forecast for the coming months. Predicting that the UK will be in the wake of Brexit, those attending will gain insight into the projection of London’s economy.

Angus Farr, Chair of the London Society’s Business Board and director of Training Counts, will be giving a summary of the key findings from the ICAEW 2019 Q4 Business Confidence Monitor survey. This reveals business confidence levels as well as forecasting economic indicators and trends in the London and East region, as well as nationally.
