“Financial Regulation and Stability after Brexit“

21 November 2018 (4 pm – 7:30 pm)

In presence of:

Didier Reynders, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and European Affairs

Michel Barnier, European Union Chief Negotiator

 Palais d’Egmont, Brussels

The Brexit negotiations are in a difficult phase and it is hard to predict what relationship the UK will have with the EU in the future. The UK is most likely to exit the Single Market on 29 March 2019 or 31 December 2020. Financial institutions based in the UK will thus lose their passporting rights to the European market. This conference will examine some of the most important issues raised by this profound regime change.
