Join us at the Chamber on November the 23rd for an event hosted by the UK-EU Future Relations Committee where we will welcome Mrs Paulina Dejmek-Hack, Director for General Affairs at DG FISMA (Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union), to speak on Financial Services and Future Relations.

The role of DG FISMA is to preserve financial stability, and work towards one of the Commission’s key priorities, to create an economy that works for people. It does this primarily by monitoring the financial reforms which were proposed and implemented following the Global Financial Crisis of 2008. Such as the consolidation of the Economic and Monetary Union, the strengthening of financial regulation, and movement towards a European Banking Union.

Now that the UK is no longer a part of the EU, the relationship between the two parties is loosely governed by the Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA). The trade deal has had a particular impact on the financial services sector, as it still allows partial bilateral access, but enables more unilateral decision making. Subsequently, the UK has suggested its intention to pivot away from Europe when it comes to financial services and co-operate more with other financial centers like the US, Singapore and Switzerland.

Attendees will have an opportunity to listen to Mrs Dejmek-Hack’s views on the current situation regarding UK-EU financial services and the impact that it could have on future UK-EU relations. Following her presentation, attendees will have the opportunity to put their questions to the speaker in a moderated Q&A session, moderated by Vice-Chair of the UK-EU Relations Committee, Mark Foster.

We look forward to welcoming you at the Chamber for this exciting event!
