The foundations laid down following the banking crisis are undergoing intense scrutiny. We are yet to realise the implications of Brexit or what the change in US administration means for the European economic landscape.
The EU is continuing with the development of a strategy to bolster its financial services framework and ensure ongoing economic progress. As we look to the future, this conference offers a unique opportunity to gauge the mood of the European Union from the inside.
Entitled "The Shifting Sands of European Financial Services", the 15th Annual European Financial Services included sessions focusing on:
- Strengthening the EU financial sector's resilience - Risk on or Risk off?;
- Seamless capital markets - one step forward, three step back?;
- The International Outlook - Shake-up or Stabilization? (by invitation only).
