Since the financial crisis, European policy makers have prepared and agreed the largest amount of financial services legislation in European history. ESMA has then produced a long list of standards and guideline on how best to implement and supervise these rules, yet Brexit poses new challenges. Are the agreed rules delivering and is the current supervisory structure “fit” to ensure that European markets are resilient, safe and competitive in a global market? What overhaul of the European third country regime is needed to take Brexit into account and ensure it is fit for purpose?
