How Are UK Trade Negotiations Impacting the Deal Market Roundtable and Reception

February 27, 2020

On December 13, 2019, Boris Johnson's Conservative party won the UK General Election. With a comfortable majority in the House of Commons, this paved the way for the UK to leave the European Union (EU) on January 31, 2020. While the divorce terms have been agreed on (subject to final approval by the House of Lords), future trading agreements with the EU and beyond are up for grabs. Currently, the UK Government has only agreed on 20 “continuity” deals covering 50 countries, accounting for only 8% of total UK trade. The EU accounts for 49% of all UK trade and the U.S. a further 18%*, but on what will be our trading terms?

Duff & Phelps and Kroll, a division of Duff & Phelps, invite you to join us for an informative, interactive discussion on what the election outcome really means for the UK deal market.
