UK’s Department for International Trade

The UK’s Department for International Trade (DIT) is responsible for promoting UK trade globally and attracting foreign direct investment to the UK, negotiating market access and trade deals, and championing free trade.

DIT works with financial services organizations and fund managers on their operations and asset allocations in the US. DIT’s Financial and Professional Services and Capital Investment teams throughout the US support investors interested in UK assets or expanding operations into the UK. More widely, DIT assists UK financial firms landing in North America, with strong representation among innovative UK FinTechs, and hosts an array of thought-leadership events at Consulates across North America, including in New York’s midtown east.
