Breakfast Briefing: “Future Proofing: Parliament and Financial Services Post-Brexit”
March 24, 2020 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am
The UK’s exit from the EU raises a number of important questions about the relationship between Parliament and the financial services sector that will need to be addressed. Soon Westminster will be solely responsible for legislating and scrutinising the UK’s financial services policy. This breakfast briefing will look at what this means for the sector and whether a new approach could lead to better financial services policy. The event will also see the APPG on Financial Markets & Services launch a consultation on this important issue (terms of reference attached).

Prior to Kay’s career as an MEP, she worked in investment banking. Kay brings a unique insight to policy ‘behind the scenes’ and the reality of Brexit in the lead up to 31 January 2020.
