Brexit and implications for the financial sector

The Nordic Capital Markets Forum organised a seminar on Brexit and implications for the financial sector. Following the United Kingdom’s vote to leave the European Union in June, it is expected that the terms of the UK’s relationship with the EU and its member states will be renegotiated. Although it is unknown what these terms will eventually be, it is likely that Brexit will have important implications not least for the financial sector. At this half-day seminar, we considered the political, financial and legal implications of Brexit and discussed how best to prepare for the unknown.
