We recently had the pleasure of organising a 160-guest business reception for client Belfast City Council, to showcase Belfast’s leading role in shaping the future of the Financial & Professional Services sector in the UK.
This exclusive event, on the evening of Tuesday 5th February 2019, was hosted by Catherine McGuinness, Chair of the Policy and Resources Committee, City of London Corporation and The Right Honourable, The Lord Mayor of Belfast, Councillor Deirdre Hargey in the historic Crypts at the Guildhall, London.
This special evening followed the recent announcement by the Chancellor of the Exchequer approving funding for The Belfast Region City Deal, a deal that will deliver more than 20,000 new jobs through a 10-year investment strategy, reinforcing Belfast’s position as one of the leading UK Financial Services Centres.
The city’s transformation from ship building mecca to Financial Services Centre is well-known. The innovation, entrepreneurship and agility that enabled this transformation are now at the forefront of a Financial Technology revolution – Belfast leads the way in Fintech, Cybersecurity and Blockchain.
