This seminar brought together policymakers with stakeholders to discuss the regulatory and economic priorities for financial services and the City of London, as the UK Government takes forward Brexit negotiations.
Delegates discussed priorities for maintaining London’s position as a leading financial centre 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.
The seminar also examined 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.
Delegates also considered 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 were 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.
