The UK has the most extreme regional inequalities in the OECD and one of the most centralised governance and financial systems all controlled from London.
How can the finance and banking world help level the playing field and shift all focus and control away from London? When it comes to finance and banking - why are they so important to levelling up? What has gone wrong with local access to finance? And what is needed to resolve this problem?
Join Ron Emerson, Chairman of Bank North, and Professor Colin Mayer, Lead Researcher on the Oxford Martin Initiative on Regional Levelling-up and Visiting Professor at the Blavatnik School, as they discuss the above and in what ways Bank North’s business model can address these needs.
This talk will take place in person at the Oxford Martin School and online. Please visit the Oxford Martin School's website to register.
