Lord Hill meets Corporate Members over breakfast


On February 9th, Commissioner Lord Hill joined CEPS’ Corporate Members for an informal breakfast meeting to present his priorities for 2016 and exchange views. The discussion touched on the online consultation on the Capital Markets Union and the need for banking rules that are proportionate. Chaired by CEPS Director for Corporate and External Relations, Kerstin Born-Sirkel, the debate also turned to the economic impact of Brexit. Commissioner Lord Hill made it clear that being on the outside and having access to the EU market on the same terms is an illusion. At the same time, however, as an avowed optimist, he assured CEPS Corporate Members that a good deal could be found for both sides.
