Brexit Q&A Conference Call (8)
With the UK Conservative government having entered into an agreement with Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party, and rumours of splits between key ministers, and a weakened Prime Minister, the focus of this Brexit call was on recent developments on the political and regulatory side.
Primary areas covered in the recording of this discussion include:
- The effect on financial services organisations following the European Securities and Markets Authority's (ESMA's) recent rejection of ‘letterbox’ relocations after Brexit
- An update on the political situation in the UK and the impact a minority Conservative government is having on Brexit negotiations
- The revised EU Insolvency Regulation that has come into force and how cross-border insolvencies involving the UK will be affected by Brexit
- The impact of the government's recent offer concerning the rights of EU citizens working in the UK, and what UK employers of EU citizens need to be aware of
- Donald Trump's promise of a "'very big, very powerful" trade deal following Brexit
- Potential moves China might make to support the UK during these difficult times
- The feasibility that the Brexit decision can be reversed
