While the EU-UK trade deal has now been ratified, the consequences of Brexit are only just starting to emerge – and it’s increasingly clear corporates that do business across the UK, Europe and beyond will need to adapt in order to thrive. What are the key considerations for corporates and what practical steps can treasurers take today?

We are delighted to invite you to our latest webinar on Wednesday 26 May 2021, where we will explore the new post-Brexit trade paradigm and what it means for corporate financial decision-makers.

Hosted in partnership with the Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT), this interactive session is an opportunity to address key post-Brexit trade questions that are top-of-mind for corporate treasurers:

  • To what extent are we going to see divergence of regulatory rules between the UK and Europe? What might this mean for trade relationships? Could divergence be beneficial?
  • What could the implications of HM Treasury ring-fencing review be for how banks support corporates internationally?
  • What other changes are on the horizon, be it future trade deals or developments in the provision of trade finance, that may impact the way goods and services are traded?
  • How are the changes in logistics feeding through to the provision of finance and to the overall relationship with banks? What should multinationals be thinking about?
  • How are NatWest customers thinking about supply chain management? What are the possible solutions, and, for treasurers, what should be on the roadmap?

Join David Ranson, Group Treasurer of Pentland Group and experts from NatWest to hear how you can prepare for the these and other changes yet to come. Panellists include:

  •  David Ranson, Group Treasurer, Pentland Group
  •  Andrew Blincoe, Managing Director, Head of Corporates & Institutions, NatWest
  •  Shalini Sharma, General Counsel, NatWest Markets N.V. and Managing Counsel, NatWest Markets Plc
  •  Rowan Austin, Head of Trade Origination & Advisory, NatWest
  •  James Winterton, Associate Director, Policy & Technical, Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT) [moderator]
