Ireland, Global Finance and the Russian Connection Seminar

This event happened on 27th February 2018

Attracting international financial service firms has been an industrial strategy of successive Irish governments. However, the activities of the International Financial Services Centre and other global financial institutions located in Ireland are shrouded in mystery. This lecture examines Ireland’s Russian connection, how Russian-based firms use Ireland in their financial operations, and the links to the domestic economy. It also discusses these connections in light of recent allegations of Russian firms’ illegal and improper conduct in relation to Donald Trump’s presidency.
