In June 2016, the people of the United Kingdom voted in a referendum to exit the European Union. It is not clear what form the exit will take, whether there will be what is known as a hard Brexit or what is known as a soft Brexit. Either way, it is not clear what will happen to the financial services industry. Will London-based financial institutions need to move to another European jurisdiction to continue to serve EU customers? Will the EU passporting regime continue to apply? Will the EU recognise the equivalence of UK financial regulation? Will euro clearing be moved to the eurozone? Which financial centres will gain the most from Brexit? Dublin and Frankfurt or New York and Singapore? This panel will examine these questions and others that continue to come every day.
