About this webinar

The UK and European Union have been part of one of the longest negotiating strategies as a result of Brexit — until both parties reached a trade deal and an agreement on the terms of their future co-operation. Starting Jan. 1, 2021, the UK left the EU single market and customs union, as well as EU policies and international agreements.

Brexit will impact companies in the UK and EU — but businesses should not adopt the wait-and-watch approach. It is important to assess the risk, as companies that are prepared to face uncertainties with resilience find opportunities moving forward.

The spread of Covid-19 poses an additional threat to businesses across the UK and Europe. Tighter financial conditions amidst rising debts, difficulties in supply chain, and economic headwinds have led to massive uncertainty.

What should your portfolio companies know to be fully prepared for Brexit? Could the economic catastrophe of Brexit and its impact on private equity leave the UK government in a predicament? Despite uncertainties, how has Brexit created unique opportunities for private equity firms?

Join a panel of experts from Globalization Partners, Silverfleet, True Capital and FPE Capital in this discussion about the economic impact of Brexit on private equity.

We will discuss:

  • How Brexit is affecting supply chains in the UK
  • The unique opportunities for private equity firms due to Brexit
  • How companies can find new opportunities by expanding internationally

Global thinking. Global growth.
Let’s go.
