  • Financing British Companies: evolution or revolution? Sir Howard Davies, Chairman of the Royal Bank of Scotland

    Date: 09 March 2016
    Venue: UWE Exhibition and Conference Centre, BS34 8QZ

    RBS remains the largest provider of finance for British companies, though it is smaller than it was before the crisis and bailout. But how is the financing landscape for British companies changing? New 'challenger banks' have come on the scene, together with a range of new types of provider – peer to peer tenders, crowd funding etc.

    Sir Howard's lecture will discuss how firms should try to navigate through this more complex marketplace.
