An update on EU financial services legislation and associated initiatives
Background:David regularly kicks off the Financial Services Club annual agenda by updating us on the EU agenda. This year will be particularly interesting considering the Brexit agreement to move towards trade agreements, alongside Open APIs and PSD2. There's also analysis of the progress of the MiFID2 and other matters of import. Equally, now that Britain is moving out of Europe, what is the relationship going to be between the City and Brussels and the rest of Europe?
