F21 is Wedlake Bell’s forum for financial services businesses, their directors and advisors

Established by corporate partner financial services expert Rosalyn Breedy, F21 aims to help forward-thinking businesses to take a proactive approach to embracing regulatory, economic and technological change.  The forum is a joint venture between Wedlake Bell Solicitors, outsourced technology support provider Lanware, and Investment & Wealth Management Consultants.

“These are turbulent times for the financial services sector which is still implementing the regulatory and governance changes originating from the last financial crisis.  Add to this the uncertainties of Brexit, constant technological challenges, skills shortages, major demographic changes, and a range of pressures on margins and returns,” explains Rosalyn Breedy.

“However, where there is change there is opportunity – and the objective of the F21 Forum is to provide a safe space for business owners, directors and senior managers and professional advisors to come together to discuss these challenges and identify ways to thrive in the 21st Century.  The approach is holistic and multi-disciplinary, and F21 provides an opportunity to hear from a wide range of experts, discuss best practice and share experiences.”
