Helping Britain prosper in uncertain times
António Horta-Osório, Chief Executive of Lloyds Banking Group
António Horta-Osório will set out the emerging economic trends following the June referendum result, emphasising the importance of investment in areas such as infrastructure, housing and education to help put the country in the best possible position to emerge stronger from the uncertain times that lie ahead. He will give his views, as Chief Executive of the country’s largest retail and commercial bank since 2011, on the banking industry’s transformation in the wake of the financial crisis, and the challenges ahead for the industry and how it can play its full role in helping Britain to prosper in the wake of the vote to leave the European Union.
