Launch of the North West Financial Centre of Excellence


TheCityUK invite's 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 James Wharton MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State in the Department for Communities and Local Government with responsibility for the Northern Powerhouse, who will tell us more about government policy relating to the region and how plans to develop the Northern Powerhouse are being taken forward.

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, Commercial and Marketing 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 (helen.crampton@cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk) if you would like to attend this event.
