Dean’s Lecture Series provides platform to hear expert opinion on topical issues

Issued by University of Leicester Press Office on 15 November 2016

A prestigious new lecture series will be inaugurated at the University of Leicester with a focus on the financial implications of Brexit.

The new Dean’s Lecture Series in the University of Leicester School of Business will be given on Tuesday 22 November by a senior executive of the European Central Bank (ECB).

Manfred Kremer, Deputy Head of the Financial Research Division at the European Central Bank will deliver a free public lecture entitled ‘Brexit in a CISS: cross-border transmission of financial stress’

It takes place in the Centre for Medicine Lecture Theatre, Lancaster Road, Leicester from 3.15pm-5pm.

In this talk, Manfred asks the question, “Have financial markets become concerned about the future implications of the Brexit referendum, and what could this imply for the UK economy?" He then outlines a novel financial stress index which captures and integrates current perceptions of any potential financial consequences of Brexit on the UK and its major trading partners.

Dean of the School of Business Professor Zoe Radnor said: “We are delighted that Manfred Kremer will inaugurate this lecture series in our School of Business. We hope to use this lecture series as a platform to bring distinguished speakers and practitioners to Leicester and to address issues that are topical and pertinent to society.  We will be holding these lectures throughout the year and hope as many people as possible have the opportunity to participate.”

The event is open to staff, students, graduates, researchers and members of the public. Spaces are limited and pre-registration is required via:
