As part of our commitment to assisting our clients to prepare for Brexit, and keeping them up to date with respect to European Brexit dialogue and political developments, Matheson is hosting a briefing in London on 1 March on the importance of the UK – Ireland relationship post Brexit.
We are pleased to have Lord Jonathan Hill, Former UK Commissioner for Financial Stability, Financial Services and the Capital Markets Union and Minister of State for Financial Services Eoghan Murphy TD join us for what promises to be an interesting and informative event.
Eight months on from the UK referendum, the level of uncertainty which the outcome of the Brexit vote has presented continues to be a significant challenge for the business and trading environment in Ireland, the UK, Europe and globally. Since then, we have seen many client organisations facing consideration of an enormous range of Brexit-related issues across a number of different business lines. The speed at which they are preparing varies, depending on the sector.
The briefing will focus on strategies to manage the business costs and disruptions which will be incurred by the financial services industry as a result of Brexit, with a particular emphasis on the Banking and Investment Services, Insurance, Investment Funds and FinTech sectors. As part of this discussion members of Matheson’s dedicated Brexit Advisory Group will provide expertise and insight for attendees with respect to Brexit planning and the importance of the Ireland – UK relationship post Brexit.
