Tue, May 5 to Thu, May 7, 2020Event Details for ISDA 35th Annual General Meeting Register Now for ISDA 35th Annual General Meeting
Late on 31 January 2020, the UK left the European Union. Despite initial fears of the UK ‘crashing out’ without a deal, UK and EU negotiators had signed a Withdrawal Agreement, with one key effect that EU rules continue to apply to the UK until the end of 2020, including in the area of financial services.
While this entente calmed the nerves of many who feared the systemic and commercial impacts of a ‘No Deal’ Brexit, these fears may well re-emerge late in 2020 as we get close to the end of this implementation period. It also seems hugely challenging for EU and UK negotiators to agree on a comprehensive future trade relationship in financial services (among many other sectors) in 2020, and many believe that a relationship based on equivalence is the best that can be hoped for (if even that is achievable). Trade negotiations are complex. Will financial services really be traded against fishing rights?
In this conference, leading legal and government relations experts on Brexit will take participants through the intricacies and nuances of this complex issue, taking stock of progress to date, pointing out potential areas of difficulty in the days ahead (from the point of view of non-EU firms in particular), and will reflect on the kind of future financial services trade relationship market participants might hope could emerge from these difficult talks.
Who should attend: The conference will provide valuable insights for lawyers (in-house and outside counsel), government relations experts, compliance managers, risk managers and traders seeking to grapple with the practical challenges of Brexit.
