North East Insurance Institutes Webinar: Economic Outlook – storm clouds are gathering

Wednesday, 05 October 2022
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm (UK time)
    • Trevor Williams

The Insurance Institutes of the North East are delighted to welcome back Professor Trevor Williams for a fourth installment of his fascinating economic series events.

The UK economy is now facing 4 shocks: one stems from the after effects of the pandemic, another from the war in Ukraine, a third from the lingering policy effects of action to tackle the global financial crisis and the fourth is from Brexit.

While the extent of consumer inflation is a direct consequence of the supply side shock from Covid-19, and is being exacerbated by the war, QE should have been halted a few years ago. As a result of all this and an aging population, the UK is facing a cost of living crisis. How do we navigate the coming storms?

Trevor has been the Chief Economist at Lloyds Bank - Commercial Banking for over 15 years; he is a visiting Professor at Derby University, Chairman of the Institute of Economic Affairs Shadow Monetary Policy Committee and a well-known author, lecturer and consultant.

Learning objectives:
At the end of this event delegates will be able to identify:

• an analysis of the uncertainty the UK faces as it explores opportunities outside the EU
• how to consider ways to navigate the cost of living crisis
• how economic data can be used by professionals in a meaningful way to better educate their clients

Please note: This event is a regional collaboration between the local institutes in the area. Your booking details will be shared with the Insurance Institute of York, which is acting as the host institute for this event.
