Book now for "An Economic Affair" with Professor Trevor Williams, leading UK economist – PFS/CII event

The Insurance Institute of York is delighted to host an evening audience with of one of the UK's finest economists, Professor Trevor Williams.

Join us for this unique CPD and supper event on the day the country wakes up to a new government when having challenged your mind, we're delighted to invite you to join us for a bite to eat and the opportunity to network and socialise, all in the elegant surroundings of the city's Principal Hotel. 


Leaving the EU is the single biggest decision the UK has taken in 50 years. The transition means the UK will face some of its greatest challenges. What will happen to employment, economic growth and the Union? Whatever happens will determine the future for you, your children, grandchildren and the businesses you work in or deal with.

In this environment focusing on your personal finances is a wise move. Economics is about consumption. People either spend money now or they use financial instruments – like bonds, shares and savings accounts – so they can spend later. In uncertain times we seek insurance protection from the financial consequences of damage and legal liability.

This event is timely, just a day after the general election  when you will hear Trevor's expert comments and reaction to the result.

Learning objectives:

At the end of this event delegates will be able to identify

  • an analysis of the uncertainty the UK faces as it explores opportunities outside the EU
  • how to consider personal finances in the light of what will happen to employment, economic growth and the EU
  • how economic data can be used by professionals in a meaningful way to better educate their clients
