Post-Brexit means emerging markets for the UK: ISFIN teams up with agile English law firm

Katherine Evans | Senior Partner
17th March 2020.

Katherine Evans, founder and Senior Partner at MIRKWOOD EVANS VINCENT and Prof. Laurent Marlière, CEO of ISFIN announced they will collaborate to make the most of the current British situation towards emerging markets.

There has been a significant drop in FDI since the Brexit referendum, but since the effective Brexit, the UK has nevertheless made British companies more attractive and cheaper for foreign investors due to the fall of the pound. According to Laurent Marlière, in order to perpetuate this situation and allow a resumption of safe investments, it is necessary to be accompanied by experienced consultants and experts with a thorough knowledge of the UK market and an understanding of the different national industries.
Now that the UK said farewell to the EU, many players, including the government itself are re-igniting their relationship with commonwealth countries which are emerging markets. This very substantial shift will impact both inbound and outbound FDI’s to and from the UK.
There is more to the United Kingdom than London. This partnership with Mirkwood Evans Vincent, who are well established in central England will help us to provide a quality service to meet the various challenges inherent to emerging markets. Mirkwood Evans Vincent is ideal to guide clients in both inward investment for international clients and setting up or buying businesses in the UK and global expansion for UK clients wishing to export their goods and services to the rest of the world.
