FRP economic conference

Join us at our annual economic conference on Thursday 5 March

The start of 2020 has instigated many discussions on the outlook of the UK economy for the year ahead. While the recent landslide election result seems to have strengthened the economic outlook, factors such as the looming trade deal with Europe could still cause long term uncertainty, and keep business investments on hold.

Hear from the experts

Join us at our 9th anniversary FRP economic conference, in association with ICAEW South Essex, where our panel of expert speakers will share their views on a number of current economic affairs.

Topics will include:

  • Financial predictions for the UK economy over the next 12 – 18 months;
  • Macroeconomics and the national financial position; and
  • Microeconomics, with particular attention to smaller, local markets and how Brexit might affect them.
