Bridget Rosewell WebsiteBridget Rosewell was invited to be a guest speaker at The 2016 World Traders’ Tacitus Debate on Thursday 28th April 2016. 

This year’s debate returned to the London premises of DLA Piper at the invitation of the Tacitus subcommittee Chairman, Lord (Tim) Clement-Jones.

Following Sir Paul Tucker’s Lecture at Guildhall, theme was “Should International Monetary Policy and Global Foreign Policy be Inextricably Linked?”

Guests and students in attendance were treated to interventions from four distinguished speakers: two economists, Vicky Pryce who previously worked for the UK Government as is now on the Advisory Board of OMFFIF, along with Volterra’s Bridget Rosewell OBE. In contrast were Simon Derrick, the Chief Currency Strategist on the BNY Mellon Markets team, and the Chairman of CET, David Coughtrie, who brought to the debate his wide business experience.
