“The European Banking Authority is urging London-based banks to take immediate steps if they want to continue operations in the EU after Brexit. The clock is ticking.” (Handelsblatt Global, June 26, 2018)

The UK’s exit from the EU will probably have huge consequences for the financial industry. London may even lose its position as the most important European financial hub.

What does this mean for the banking industry in Germany? How can banks prepare for Brexit? Could Brexit even be an opportunity?

On the eve of Handelsblatt’s Banking Summit, we will bring together top politicians and banking executives to discuss the risks and opportunities of Brexit for the German finance industry. We will also hear use cases from several banks.
