‘Financial Services – Transitioning to Free Trade After Brexit’

Financial Services – Transitioning to Free Trade After Brexit

Monday 15th July, 12.30pm – 1.30pm

As the UK prepares to change prime minster and leave the EU, Politeia will discuss the best framework for future UK-EU trade and the steps now needed before a deal is negotiated to keep trade open and free.

The event will mark publication of UK and EU Financial Services – The Legal Framework for Free Trade After Brexit, by Barnabas Reynolds, developing earlier proposals for enhanced equivalence on which HMG’s proposals for future EU-UK trade are broadly based.

He and other speakers will analyse such themes as:

  • What transitional framework will best promote the UK’s dynamic financial sector trade, globally and with the EU?
  • What final form arrangements would benefit each party?
  • What precedents are there for equivalence-based financial services trade ?
  • What steps are needed to give business the certainty and security it needs?

Speaking will be:

  • Barnabas Reynolds, Author, UK and EU Financial Services – The Legal Framework for Free Trade After Brexit; Shearman & Sterling LLP;
  • The Rt. Hon Lord Lilley PC, House of Lords EU Internal Market Sub-Committee
  • Trevor Williams, Visiting Professor, University of Derby; Former Chief Economist, Lloyds Bank Commerical Banking (1997-2016)
  • The Rt. Hon Nicky Morgan, MP, Chair, Treasury Select Committee

The event will take place on Monday 15th July 2019, 12.30pm – 1.30pm (preceded by a drinks reception). If you would like to attend, please respond to this e-mail by writing to press@politeia.co.uk with your name, position, phone number and organisation, and we shall put you on the list. If you would
