SWBC Quarterly Conference – Finance & Investment Futures


Time: 9:30am – 1:30pm

Venue: Exeter Racecourse 

Tickets: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/finance-investment-futures-tickets-56194537374?discount=SWBCMEMBER

Proudly sponsored by REGIONALLY West

As Brexit looms, and with around 4,000 jobs currently at risk across the Region, we’re coming together to get a grip on the opportunities for investment now and in the future. We’ll be taking a look at best practice, emerging opportunities and future trends across debt, equity and grant funding. With examples of successful South West companies that have recently secured investment, and new banks and stock exchanges launching across the region, this is an opportunity to buck the trend and ensure that the South West thrives, in spite of Brexit.
