Brexit Impact on financial services industry and the Irish economy

The impact of Brexit on Ireland is likely to be mixed. While Ireland’s exposure to the UK has led the government to revise its forecasts for GDP growth down in 2017, some areas of the economy are well-positioned to flourish in the post-Brexit era, most notably financial services.

Following the triggering of Article 50 by the UK government, representatives from the public and private sector gathered to discuss the longer-term prospects for the Irish economy and financial services industry.


Participants at the Ireland after Brexit roundtable were:


Michael Cullen, CEO, Investec Ireland

David Dalton, Consulting Partner, Financial Services Industry Leader, Deloitte

Susan Dargan, Executive Vice President & Co-Head of Global Services, EMEA, State Street

Kieran Donoghue, Head of International Financial Services, IDA Ireland
