The inclusion of financial services in the post-Brexit agreement of the United Kingdom is one of the key points of disaccord between the Brexit teams of the EU and the UK.

Our ‘What the Chiefs Say’ debate with Ward Möhlmann offers our members an opportunity to have an insight and to better assess the expected impacts of Brexit on the financial sector, not only in the UK and Europe but also around the world. The debate also sheds light on what the future agreement between the two parties might look like. Given that British banks lend $1,4 trillion to EU companies and governments, what is the possible impact on both UK and European growth?
