What financial services without London for EU 27 countries?
When the United Kingdom leaves the European Union, the authorisations granted by British financial regulators to conduct financial services activities will lose their so-called European passport status. The immediate effect will be that UK regulated entities will no longer be able to provide from London a large number of services to clients based in the European Union.
This situation raises the crucial issue of knowing whether EU 27 economies and enterprises will be in a position to access the financial services that they need after Brexit.
The conference will convene business leaders, senior policy makers, regulators and experts. It will address the issue with a capital markets, asset management, insurance and banking prism.
