New Markets Group

Our New Markets Group reflects the strategic interests of UK-based financial and related professional services firms in deepening their links and expanding their footprint in a variety of new markets.

Chaired by Nick Tolchard, Head of Europe, the Middle East & Africa for Invesco Fixed Income, the group focuses on high-growth potential markets which are not covered through our various Market Advisory Groups (MAGs), and which offer longer-term opportunities for our members. The New Markets Group convenes task-and-finish groups comprising senior practitioners from across the UK-based industry, that focus on exploring areas in specific markets – from capital markets to green finance – where we can make the most impact.

The group also works closely with UK Government, providing strategic insight, guidance and support to policymakers as they look to strengthen trade and investment relationships with new markets and work with developing markets to build capacity and assist them to meet international standards.

One example of the New Markets Group’s work includes a task-and-finish group established to provide the industry’s priorities on the UK-Mexico Free Trade Agreement to the UK negotiating team. The group also works closely with our Liberalisation of Trade in Services (LOTIS) committee to address specific trade and investment barriers.
