I recently wrote to the Treasury to ask what steps they will take steps to establish a new global platform agreement for financial services.

The Minister, John Glen MP, replied:

The UK has extensive global financial services ties with both leading advanced markets and emerging markets. When we leave the EU, we will have new tools at our disposal, which we will take advantage of to enhance our key financial services relationships. These include the chance to forge deep bilateral regulatory agreements based on equivalence and mutual recognition, and the opportunity to negotiate on financial services in Free Trade Agreements. We will also continue to use existing tools, such as engagement in the international standard setting bodies.
