Overview (Program Summary)
The date of Brexit - when the United Kingdom officially leaves the European Union - has already moved some way from its original intention. Despite the additional time, much still remains uncertain and no area more so than financial services, where the impact will be felt particularly keenly, causing potentially seismic change.
The impact will be felt not just by those firms already doing business in the UK, but also those wishing to enter the UK market, or who already do business in the UK from a base in the EU. Despite all the uncertainty, the UK remains an attractive market place for financial services firms, with more firms than ever seeking authorisation there.
This presentation will look at the current state of planning for Brexit for financial services firms and the possible impact of a “no deal” Brexit, with some practical pointers on steps firms could be taking now not just to plan for the changes, but to take advantage of the uncertainty.
