Banking on the Future - Autumn 2022

​Register to receive a copy of the recording via the form below. The guestlist to attend is now closed.

​Banking on the Future – in partnership with Bank of England - will be returning for its fifth instalment on Thursday 24th November with the aim to educate businesses on how to navigate through a fast-moving economic landscape.

At a time when the Bank of England’s role in the UK economy has arguably never been more high profile, the expert event panel will take part in a wide-ranging discussion providing invaluable data and insight into the macro and micro economic climates, and their impacts on the global real estate industry.

The session follows the announcement made by the Bank on interest rates and is conveniently aired halfway through the financial year, a significant time to assess budgets for many businesses.

Bank of England Economist, Rob Elder, will talk on behalf of the bank to offer an exclusive analysis of the market and future trends shaping the economy. Joining Elder on the panel are industry-leading property oracles, yet to be announced.

Compered by deverellsmith & Hintel’s Global CEO and Founder, Andrew Deverell-Smith, one of the leading executive search consultants within the real estate industry for the last 16 years.

The session will cover:

  • An opening update from Bank of England on the modern dynamics of the economy

  • Significant changes to taxation and interest rates
