Quartet of Events – Autumn Kicks off in Style!

The IBNS enters its second year, following a fantastic celebration of year one at our Awards Dinner in the Summer at the City Chambers in Edinburgh.

To continue the second half of our programme through to the end of year, we have secured a number of high recommended events, with four crammed into the first half of October alone!


Here’s a taste of what’s coming up next month…..

Wednesday 4th October – Edinburgh

Brexit – the Scottish Perspective

Mike Russell, MSP Minister for UK Negotiations on Scotland’s Place in Europe, will provide an insight into the negotiations on Brexit.

There will be an opportunity for questions, discussions and networking, for what will be a thought provoking breakfast seminar.




Thursday 5th October – Edinburgh

Where do you think you are tax resident? Does it matter?

This important topic will consider:

  • What are the changes to UK taxation in recent years and following the general election?
  • How does that fit in with the Global attack on tax avoidance?
  • Where are you resident and why?
  • What does being a Scottish taxpayer mean and who is liable?
  • Where are internationally mobile employees taxed and why?
  • What changes have happened to the UK, NI and ROI personal tax scene?

A light breakfast will be provided along with time for networking.

Building the British Irish Business Relationship

H.E. Adrian O’Neill has recently been appointed as Ambassador of Ireland to the UK and would be delighted to meet members of the IBNS

20-minute presentation followed by Q&A



Thursday 12th October – Dublin

Scottish and Irish Financial Synergies

The Irish Business Network Scotland, PwC, and the Scottish Irish Finance Initiative invite you to join leaders of the finance industry as we discuss the benefits and opportunities of a common focus between Scottish and Irish financial services industries.

Change creates opportunities – while last year’s vote in the UK to leave the European Union has led to significant challenges for banks, insurers and the fund industry, Ireland, and Scotland have the skills, synergies, expertise and experience that together can offer solutions to companies caught up in the uncertainty.

Topics & speakers include:
Andy O’Callaghan, PwC European Asset and Wealth Management Leader

Dr. Frances Ruane, Chairman of the SIFI Advisory Board, member of the Council of Economic Advisors to the Scottish Government and the First Minister’s Standing Council on Europe.

David Clarke CFA, Policy Director & Dr. Daniel Broby, ‎Academic Director, Scottish Irish Finance Initiative, and Director, Centre for Financial Regulation and Innovation. Strathclyde Business School will deliver a policy paper on a shared offering for the asset management industry.

The event will close with 2 panel discussions covering the areas of asset management and Fintech.
