Policy Forum for London

Brexit policy priorities for the City - regulation, workforce and market opportunities

Morning, Wednesday, 28th February 2018

Royal Aeronautical Society, 4 Hamilton Place, London W1J 7BQ

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This seminar is bringing together policymakers with stakeholders to discuss the regulatory and economic priorities for financial services and related sectors operating in the Square Mile, as financial service businesses consider their own Brexit strategies.


Delegates will discuss priorities for maintaining London’s position as a leading financial center post-Brexit, including ways in which the City can re-orientate its operations to non-EU markets and support London in becoming a world leader in new and emerging sectors - and the future of euro-denominated clearing in London.


The seminar also examines the future regulatory landscape for UK financial services post-Brexit, looking in particular at the level of equivalence with EU regulations, and the potential loss of passporting and single market access - as well as the challenges for meeting the Chancellor’s ambitions for a “new paradigm” for trade in financial services with the EU.


Delegates will also consider the implications of the end to Freedom of Movement, and the potential impact a new immigration system might have on attracting international talent to the Capital.


Speakers and other delegates at this conference are expected to be a senior and informed group including Members of both Houses of Parliament and MEPs, senior UK and EU officials involved in this area of public policy, together with key stakeholders from the banking, commercial property, insurance and legal services markets, investors, wealth managers, advisory firms, analysts, commentators, think tanks, academics, and members of the national and trade media.
