Launch of the North West Financial Centre of Excellence


TheCityUK invites you to an event in Manchester, which will showcase the financial services industry across the North West region. This event, supported by the UK Trade & Investment and hosted by BNY Mellon, forms part of UKTI’s Financial Centres of Excellence initiative. This initiative aims to improve the way in which the UK’s financial services capabilities are promoted by industry and government with the objective of attracting new investment in the UK and retaining investment already here.

A keynote speech will be delivered by Harriett Baldwin MP, Economic Secretary to the Treasury, will tell us more about the sector within the region and will meet with the key businesses that are so important to this economy.

This will be followed by guest speakers including:
• Matt Wells, Site Executive, Manchester, BNY Mellon
• David Kane, Operations Sector Lead at UK Trade and Investment
• Dan Torjussen-Proctor, Business Development Director, TheCityUK.

The North West Region Local Enterprise Partnerships and UKTI have been working on establishing the Northern Powerhouse - North West Region as a Centre of Excellence for the Financial Services sector. Contributing over £31.7bn to the economy, the Financial Services sector is of significant importance to both the region and the UK.

We welcome your attendance or that of your colleagues, and are particularly keen to welcome those whose businesses might be looking to expand into the North West region.

Please contact Helen Crampton if you would like to attend this event.
