The Company was very well represented at the Cass Business School M&A and PE Society’s Lecture on Tuesday 18th June where the theme of the evening was “How Tech Companies Are Disrupting Corporate Finance”. A great audience of 135 from Cass, WCIB and other interested parties heard fascinating presentations and a panel session followed by a lively Q & A session.
The Lord Mayor and Immediate Past Master, Alderman Peter Estlin, spoke with great insight into the success of British Fin-tech companies and why London has become one of the main global hubs for Fin-techs worldwide.
The Master, Mark Sismey-Durrant, followed with his thoughts particularly on how Fin-techs could, and should, encourage investments from Private Equity firms.
A lively round of Q&A followed before a fascinating panel discussion with panellists from both academic and professional backgrounds including the Company’s own Past Master Professor Michael Llewelyn-Jones.
