    The B-AS FairFx Panel Discussion on Global Trade and Investment in 2019

    The Britain-Australia Society was happy to collaborate with new Society Corporate Member’s FairFX on our first joint event at Australia House on Tuesday 19th March. 

    The evening saw a panel of experts discuss the global trade and investment opportunities in context of current geopolitical developments, especially the ongoing Brexit process in the UK and the rise of charismatic populists around the world.

    Sebastian Payne (Financial Times) offered his expert opinion on matters as wide-ranging as the reaction of global markets to British political developments, UK industry’s planning for a no-deal Brexit and the machinations of Theresa May’s cabinet colleagues. Stephen Dietz (Austrade) and Michael Rimmer (FairFX) combined to give a broad yet detailed overview of the current issues facing investors in the UK and elsewhere and Elizabeth Ames of the AUKCC spoke on the investment opportunities for Australian business in the UK (and vice versa) in the wake of Brexit.

     

     

    While the details of the discussion are protected under Chatham House rules, it’s safe to say that combined with erudite questions from the audience, this proved to be an interesting and informative discussion for all involved.

    The event had excellent attendance from across the sector, including representatives from the Department for International Trade and senior global traders and investment managers and the reception which followed was a great opportunity to mingle and share ideas.

    Thank you to our Chair; Paul Webster, Governance and Guidance for International Market Expansion, Executive at International Investment Service.

    Thank you to our Expert Panel; Sebastian Payne – Financial Times political leader writer, Stephen Dietz – First Secretary (Trade) at the Australian High Commission in London, Michael Rimmer – Senior Trader at currency experts FairFX, Elizabeth Ames – Executive Director, Australia-United Kingdom Chamber of Commerce. 

    Special thanks goes to Katie Keith of FairFX for her unwavering efforts which guaranteed the success of the evening.
