REGISTRATION FULL: Ireland & the City: A Key Connection – March 24th 2015

Since the launch of the IFSC in 1987, Ireland has become globally recognised as a leading location for a range of internationally traded financial services. Central to the IFSC’s success has been the strong relationship with Ireland’s closest trading partner, the UK. In particular, Ireland’s connections with the City of London, a leading global financial services centre and the single most internationally-focused financial marketplace in the world, have been of vital importance.

LIBS and the Embassy of Ireland, Great Britain, are delighted to host an expert-panel discussion, exploring the future for Ireland’s international financial services sector and the opportunities and challenges faced in further developing the relationship with the City. Click here to find out more.
