CEPS and ECMI are launching a regular member-only roundtable on EU-UK financial services relations. The debates will be moderated by Niamh Moloney, LSE and Karel Lannoo, CEPS-ECMI. Each meeting, we will be joined by expert speakers and discuss a different aspect of the relationship.
EU-UK financial services, once a very developed relationship whilst in the single financial market, will have to navigate the new normal of the Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA). The TCA sets the framework for trade between the EU and the UK, providing a governance structure and mechanism for dispute settlement in a variety of fields. However a key missing element is a dedicated Committee for financial services, which may add a few stumbling blocks to maintaining that relationship.
The different provisions of the TCA will take time to be implemented, and financial services providers will need to adapt to this new way of operating. In this first meeting, we will closely examine the context of the relationship for financial services under the new agreement.
We are delighted to be joined by the following speakers:
Richard Knox, Director Financial Services, HM Treasury
Almoro Rubin de Cervin, Head of Unit, DG FISMA, European Commission
Danuta Hübner, MEP and CEPS Board Member
The format of the discussion will be informal, off-the-record, with brief presentations, and a moderated discussion.
This session is strictly reserved to members and will be run in Zoom, you must register in advance to gain access to the meeting and the details to join will be sent one hour prior of the event.
