The evolving financial services landscape in post-Brexit Europe: How financial institutions are adjusting and what it means for policy makers.

Financial markets operate on a global scale and move across geographies in line with market conditions. However, cross-border integration of financial services has not fully recovered from the financial crisis. Is Brexit, along with increasing protectionist rhetoric in the USA, and rising tensions in Basel, a portent of increasing decentralisation in financial services?
