The Financial Centres Summit

Presented by Finance Dublin and Financial Services Ireland

Tuesday October 17th 2017, Dublin Castle, Ireland


The Summit will provide an overview of the business and jurisdictional issues facing cross border International Financial Services businesses globally, by global thought leaders. Held in Dublin, it will focus on the global issues in the five International Financial Services hubs where Ireland is a leading world financial centre: Aircraft Leasing, Investment Funds & Asset Management, Market-Based Finance, Reinsurance & Insurance, and International Banking.

In a day-long stream entitled "Global financial centres: Trends and emerging locations" it will address the implications of some of the most impactful changes seen since the financial crisis, for example, Brexit, and the new administration in the USA, as well as global developments in tax and regulation, e.g. BEPS, and the post-crisis financial stability agenda of the FSB.
