Global Financial Centres after the Global Financial Crisis and Brexit

Professor Dariusz Wójcik will host the launch of the book entitled 'Global Financial Centres after the Global Financial Crisis and Brexit', just published by Oxford University Press, at the British Academy in London (10 Carlton House Terrace) on Monday, 17 September 2018.

A presentation of the book and a Q&A session at 5:00-6:30pm, will be preceded by welcome drinks at 4:30pm and followed by more drinks and snacks, 6:30-7:30pm.

The book gathers leading geographers, historians and economists who examine whether and how the landscape of international financial centres has changed in the decade since the outbreak of the global financial crisis on 15 September 2008. While we uncover cases of recovery (e.g. in New York and London), growth (in Asian centres) and stagnation (in Swiss centres), and document significant differences in regulation and corporate restructuring across places, overall the book shows and explains a remarkable stability at the top of the hierarchy of international financial centres. In addition, the book explores the potential impact of fintech and Brexit on the future of global finance. If the financial crisis has not re-drawn the map of financial centres, perhaps technology and politics will? Further information on the book is available on the OUP website.

The launch will be attended by academics, finance professionals from the private and public sector, and journalists. The number of places is limited, so if you would like to attend, please register as soon as possible.
