The Brexit transition period having ended on the 31st December 2020 marked the anticipation of the UK’s full departure from the EU becoming a reality. In response to this, to support the implications that this will have for our member companies, the Spanish Chamber of Commerce in the UK is organising a series of technical webinars covering what this means for different sectors and the key considerations for doing business with the UK post-Brexit. These will all be held in collaboration with different departments of the British Government.
The third of these will be on the topic of Financial Services in the UK post-Brexit. For this session, insight will be shared by John O’Regan who is the Deputy Director of International Policy and Partnerships (Financial Services) at HM Treasury; the government’s economic and finance ministry which is responsible for maintaining control over public spending and setting the direction of the UK’s economic policy.
John will be addressing the following topics:
– The government’s post-EU Exit vision for financial services
– What the TCA means for financial services firms
– Post-Brexit trading of financial services with the EU and the rest of the world
– Equivalence with the EU on financial services
The discussion will be followed by a Q&A with the keynote speaker. We therefore invite delegates to join the webinar with pre-prepared questions regarding Brexit’s impact on financial services in the UK.
Date: Wednesday 17th March, 11am-12pm UK time / 12pm- 1pm CET
