The European financial sector is in a state of flux. The United Kingdom (UK) has voted to leave the European Union (EU), creating uncertainty about market access, the evolution of EU financial regulation and possible policy fragmentation. The prospects of businesses across Europe will be affected by the forthcoming negotiations between the EU and the UK. London, one of the leading international centres for banking, sovereign bond issuance, derivatives, currency exchange and expert financial services, may lose its special position in Europe, as financial institutions and operations move to other EU Member States.

EU and national policy makers, investors, financial institutions and businesses in general are pondering the likely impact of these developments and considering their next steps. It is, therefore, appropriate to take stock of recent changes in policy and corporate strategies in the European financial sector, and identify possible outcomes.

The College of Europe (Bruges) and Deloitte will organise a one-day conference on 25 April 2017, bringing together high-level policy makers, businesses leaders and eminent academics, to discuss developments in the European financial sector in the period leading to the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.
