UK-EU Regulatory Divergence Part 1: What is it and Why Does it Matter? with BNY Mellon | Pershing
October 5 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am
Wednesday 5th October 2022 at time TBC, webinar with BNY Mellon | Pershing.
The first installment of the three-part series will provide an introduction to BNY Mellon | Pershing as well as their role in navigating regulatory change as a practitioner.
Drawing upon Pershing’s regulatory horizon scan timeline, the webinar will walk through the major milestone moments for post-Brexit UK-EU divergence, giving a holistic overview of where the two markets have got to and what can be expected in the next 6-12 months.
Specific talking points will include:
- An overview of the challenges Brexit has conjured up in terms of creating two regulatory frameworks for the financial services sector
- An evaluation of the benefits and drawbacks of no equivalence and the extent to which the UK has capitalised on its newfound freedom to develop a domestic regulatory regime
- An outline of the areas of divergence seen to date (Operational Resilience, CSDR & Prudential Rules) and where the sector can expect regulators to focus their attention next
- A nod to the House of Commons European Scrutiny Committee launching an inquiry into regulating after Brexit to understand where and how the UK should diverge from EU rules (this can be discussed in more detail in webinar 2)
