Financial Services Trade and Investment Board: one year on

The Financial Services Trade and Investment Board has published its first progress report.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government



In last year’s Budget, the government created the Financial Services Trade and Investment Board (FSTIB), a strategic body chaired by HM Treasury, which brings together government departments and industry. The board is tasked with attracting inward investment, promoting external trade and removing barriers for the UK’s financial services sector.

One year on, the board has made significant progress in delivering those objectives and the government welcomes its first progress report which announces: the priorities it has identified to support trade and attract investment in the UK’s world class financial services sector, the progresses made and outlines its plans to go further and deliver more through existing and new initiatives.
