The Midlands After Hours Networking Events from the Department for Business & Trade (DBT) will help to facilitate networking opportunities and build your knowledge and best practice in selling your services internationally.


The UK is the most internationally connected global centre for international and sustainable finance, and the world’s second largest net exporter of financial services, exporting £61bn in 2021, 20% of the UK’s total services exports.

FPBS (financial, professional, and business services), is the biggest contributor to UK services exports. The UK has comparative advantage and is a global leader in the provision of FPBS. Sub-sectors of FPBS include banking, capital markets, asset management, insurance, fintech, legal, accountancy and consulting in which the UK has global strengths that it can sell to the world. There is also high demand for these services abroad.
