Journal: Banking Conference

"The Treasury will today set out its support for regional banking as the industry gathers on Tyneside.

Experts from the world of finance and banking will be at Baltic in Gateshead to hear how regional banks could prevent banking continuing to be concentrated in the hands of a small number of players.

Hexham MP Guy Opperman has helped bring in key figures from the UK and Europe to go over how the North East can benefit from the changes.

Among those he has brought to the event is former Gosforth Grammar School pupil Anthony Thomson, named as one of the City’s most influential operators after helping set up Metro Bank, a new customer friendly bank opening branches across London."
