9:45 AM Capital Requirements Jan Putnis

As the most recent missive from the European Central Bank notes, a no deal Brexit could mean that several of the provisions of the Capital Requirements Regulation and Directive could apply in a different manner (or not at all) as far as the UK – or UK-linked exposures and assets are concerned. We will discuss the changes and implications of the UK and EU as third countries to each other.

12:15 PM The UK’s Future Relationship with the EU27 Mark Brown, Jennifer Marshall, Peter Werner

The UK’s withdrawal from the EU throws up a number of important questions for derivatives markets. How will the mechanics of Bank Resolution and Recovery and Settlement Finality change? What will Brexit mean for derivative contracts between UK and EU entities, especially in terms of existing governing law and dispute forum clauses? What will the future look like for the mutual recognition and enforcement of judgements between the UK and the EU27? How will the recognition of insolvency proceedings work?

Mark Brown, Partner, Linklaters LLP
Jennifer Marshall, Partner, Allen & Overy LLP
Peter Werner, Senior Counsel, ISDA
