On 2 June last year, shortly after the UK general election, Mark Hoban, Financial Secretary to the Treasury, came to Bruegel to explain the new government’s stance on financial services reform. Since then, the Conservative-Liberal-Democrat coalition government has introduced a number of initiatives, including the overhaul of UK prudential supervision with a shift of responsibilities to the Bank of England, and the establishment of an Independent Commission on Banking that is expected to deliver its final report later this year. The financial legislative agenda has also moved on at EU level, with major drafts expected in the next few months including on markets regulation (MiFID revision), capital and liquidity requirements for banks (CRD4), and crisis management and resolution frameworks.

The session will include a Q&A discussion moderated by Nicolas Véron, Senior Fellow at Bruegel. This event is part of a Bruegel series devoted to "the London-Brussels Nexus" that will also include breakfast discussions on the relationship between the City of London and the EU, the first two of which are scheduled on 22 March and 27 April respectively.
