Brexit marks an unprecedented event in European history and while the United Kingdom has often been portrayed as holding back Europe, the reality is, that in several key areas, the UK has been on the forefront, notably pushing for deregulation, flexibility and deeper market integration. Moreover, when it comes to finance, London has a long history as Europe’s main financial centre.

This conference aims to bring together thought leaders from policy making, academia and industry to discuss the economic implications of some of the challenges uncovered by Brexit and other recent events on both sides of the Channel.

VoxTalks: Will there be a post-Brexit financial services deal?
