The cross-border regulation of financial services after Brexit: What role for the EU equivalence regime?

 Registration is closed for this event
After Brexit the UK financial industry will lose access to the Single Market under the EU passport regime. However, financial providers established in the UK could still cater EU clients on the basis of equivalence decisions unilaterally adopted by the European Union. But to what extent the EU equivalence regime can alleviate the loss of passport rights for UK firms? Compared to the passport, equivalence access is only available to certain financial activities and it can be withdrawn at any moment by the European Commission. Equivalence is also a moving target. Significant amendments have been recently introduced to EU equivalence rules related to the European Supervisory Authorities, European Market Infrastructures and the prudential treatment of investment firms. The scope of this workshop is to understand the effects of those reforms on the EU equivalence regime, as well as its overall role in the Brexit context. Under what regulatory and supervisory requirements the EU will grant equivalence access to the UK? To what extent will the equivalence process be linked to political and non-regulatory issues? Who, under equivalence, will supervise important financial firms such as Central Counterparties and Investment firms?
