About this Event

Following Brexit the transition period between the EU and UK expired in December 2020. As a result, UK financial services firms can no longer offer their services to EU customers on a cross-border basis. In addition, they will also have to navigate Brexit-inspired changes to the FCA Handbook.

This session, presented by Hannah Doherty, will provide compliance professionals, lawyers and senior managers at FCA-authorised firms with a valuable insight into the key issues affecting the financial services industry. It will also explore the FCA’s expectations of firms and the leeway which it has granted to them, as well as the current position on equivalence.

In particular, this session will cover:

• The latest position on equivalence

• The FCA’s temporary transitional power

• The temporary permissions regime

• Onshoring EU rules into the UK

• The FCA’s expectations on customer communications

Who is this session for?

We highly recommend this webinar for financial services and legal professionals, with particular relevance for senior managers, compliance professionals, in-house lawyers, legal professionals in FCA-authorised firms and regulatory lawyers.

We expect demand for this session to be high, so early booking is recommended.
