YRP London & South East: Funding & Financing the Railway

Business & Professional

Continuing our finance series with KPMG we discuss the big money questions on fare reforms and business cases.

Come join us for our 3rd year of talks on the subject of funding and financing the Rail Network, hosted by KPMG. The event involves four speakers talking about business cases for new enhancements and programmes within the rail sector. For the 2020 event we plan to discuss two main topics: The importance of housing and development in creating the case for East West Rail and the business case for reforming Britain’s fares system. The event will be followed by drinks and networking. See the agenda below for some further questions we plan to answer during the event and our planned speakers.
