The European policy agenda features several major legislative initiatives that could significantly affect the regulatory framework for derivatives users, including the reviews of the EU Benchmarks Regulation and revised Market in Financial Instruments Directive/Regulation. Looming over these and other regulatory workstreams is the fast-approaching end of the Brexit transition period. This event explores the changes taking place and the impact they will have on derivatives markets.

The current iteration of the EU Benchmarks Regulation (BMR) will have a significant impact on the ability of EU investors to use a wide range of EU and third-country benchmarks. EU authorities are considering changes, but what issues most urgently need to be addressed? What will happen if a widely used benchmark disappears, and how will the BMR interact with the approach of other jurisdictions?
