Discussion on Mutual Recognition of Regulatory Standards

This was a topic that we addressed in our first paper in January, in partnership with Norton Rose Fulbright.  This paper explored the concept of Triangulation, whereby the UK is positioned as a three-way hub for firms wishing to access the EU market, the rest of the world or those just doing business within the UK.

Since publication there has been much more said on the wider subject, from various quarters, and with the Article 50 deadline approaching it makes sense to revisit and re-examine the concept and consider questions such as:

  • Will shared regulation strengthen equivalence?
  • Is ESMA the right vehicle for pan-European regulatory co-ordination?
  • Would “super-equivalence” undermine effective engagement with the US?

The chairman of our advisory council, Anthony Belchambers, will therefore take the lead in a discussion on the above at the Chartered Institute of Securities & Investment, 20 Fenchurch Street, EC3M 3BY, on Tuesday, 21st March from 6pm to 8pm.

We would particularly welcome input from any practitioners who feel their sector within financial services is under-represented in the equivalence debate and how Triangulation may work for them.

If you would like to attend please email  The Chatham House Rule will be in place and press are not invited.
