An update on EU financial services legislation and associated initiatives
Background:David regularly kicks off the Financial Services Club annual events by updating us on the EU financial services regulatory agenda. This year will be particularly interesting considering the potential for a Brexit agreement and the outcome of the EU/UK Equivalance arrangements, alongside Open APIs and PSD2. There's also analysis of the progress of the MiFID2, CRDV/CRR2, and related legislative items. 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?
David is known across Europe as a leading expert on EU financial market regulation. A former diplomat with over 20 years of service on mainland Europe and now acts as an EU Policy Advisor between Brussels, London and Paris, specialising in EU Financial Services. He is a member of the Executive Board of the joint MEP-EU industry "The Kangaroo Group" at the European Parliament, the Board of Directors of the Genesis Initiative at Westminster, and sits on the Transatlantic Business Council on Capital Markets.
The overall programme for this event is:
6.00pm Registration and drinks
6.30pm Speaker presentation and Q & A
7.45pm Canapés, drinks and networking
