Recorded Webinar: Operational Change Management Under Brexit

11 December 2018

The UK’s departure from the EU – whatever the eventual terms – presents financial institutions of all types operating within Europe with a huge change management challenge.

Deciding where to locate which activities, how to organise them corporately and legally, how to deploy data and technology to effect the change, and finally how to manage the process of meeting the Brexit challenge; all of these contribute to a significant operational headache that needs to be addressed rapidly.

Firms of all kinds need to grasp what’s involved in setting up EU entities so they can participate in the post-Brexit single market. They need to understand where liquidity may reside in the post-Brexit venue landscape, how to access it, and how to deliver on their best execution policies.

This webinar will discuss the impact of Brexit on financial institutions’ operations across the board and discusses best approaches given the current paucity of information on requirements and obligations.
