Speculative Investment Session (2017)

In September 2017 the Demystification Committee held a Speculative Investment Session as part of Uncertainty Playground, an exhibition taking place at London College of Communication during the London Design Festival.

A near-future scenario whereby the United Kingdom had become a tax haven following its exit from Europe was considered: the political weight of the country’s existing financial industry, the prospect of further decreased regulation and rushed international trade agreements were unique selling points for audiences considering a speculative investment in the offshore service provider industry which would flourish as a consequence.

Participants could buy shares in a UK private limited company set up by the Demystification Committee to operate as a registering agent after the end of the Brexit transition period. The scheme aimed to replicate the company formation process the Demystification Committee undertook whilst setting up its Offshore Investigation Vehicle.
