Extended briefing – Brexit and the future of financial services


September 5, 2018

The partners of the Norton Rose Fulbright LLP financial services team invite you to their latest breakfast briefing.

Our breakfast briefings provide insight, practical knowledge and information, and act as a forum for sharing views and advice.

The briefings are likely to be of particular value to senior and middle management within financial institutions with responsibility for compliance, capital markets, investment management, legal, risk and trading.


With agreement on a transition period all but settled between the EU and the UK, financial services firms now have some breathing space as regards their preparations for Brexit. During the transition period it will be business as normal with the UK continuing to participate in the Single Market and be subject to EU law. Despite the avoidance of a ‘cliff edge’ on 29 March 2019, there is still much work to done before the end of the transition period on 31 December 2020. In particular, political agreement on financial services regulation post Brexit continues to be elusive with the EU rejecting the UK Government’s call for a system of mutual recognition and maintaining that third country equivalence provisions are the only option.

  • Recent developments regarding the negotiations on the future EU / UK relationship
  • What we are seeing in the market in terms of Brexit activity
  • Euro-denominated clearing
  • Brexit implementation projects

Further details will be provided in due course.


The briefings count towards SRA continuing competence. There is no charge for attending.


The briefings will be recorded via webcast and are available after the briefing.
