A decade ago, financial markets were in chaos as the economy struggled to absorb the collapse of Lehman Brothers. Policymakers and central banks around the world fought to contain the after effects and avert further catastrophe.

Join Labour in the City for an audience with Alistair Darling, Labour Chancellor of the Exchequer from 2007-2010, to talk about how events unfolded at the heart of the crisis, interviewed by our Chair, Sophia Morrell.

At this event, Labour in the City will be launching our exclusive anthology, ‘Ten Years on’, kindly sponsored by Cicero, featuring contributions from across finance and politics on whether banking has intrinsically changed, including pieces from:

Anneliese Dodds MP, Shadow Treasury Minister, Craig Donaldson, CEO, Metro Bank, Deborah Hargreaves, the High Pay Centre, John McFarlane OBE, Chairman of Barclays, Sophia Morrell, Chair, Labour in the City, Ann Pettifor, Political Economist, Jonathan Reynolds MP, Shadow City Minister, Xavier Rolet, former Chairman of the London Stock Exchange, Simon Lewis, CEO, AFME.
