Event Description

With uncertainty surrounding the negotiations on the UK’s exit from the EU, financial services firms in London, across Europe and all over the world still have no clear answers as to what the situation will be post-2019. Considering the significance of the financial services sector for the European and global economy, the stakes could not be higher.

It is in this context that the European Movement International and ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) will bring together policy makers, industry representatives and others in Brussels on 22 November to discuss the potential impact of Brexit on the financial services industry.

Join us for an afternoon of debate and discussion as we hope to shed some light on to what to expect from the negotiations and explore what the future might hold.
