Hear Second Home co-founder Rohan Silva in conversation with journalist and award-winning author Iain Martin on his latest book Crash Bang Wallop: the inside story of London’s Big Bang and a financial revolution that changed the world.

In Crash Bang Wallop, Martin demonstrates how over the centuries the City has thrived best when it is open to new ideas and migration.

At the heart of the book is the story of how in the 1980s the Thatcherite Big Bang in financial services remade the City, changed the wider UK economy and triggered London’s comeback as a global leader in subsequent decades.

There are lessons – both good and bad – from that financial revolution that anyone wanting to understand what comes next needs to consider.
