  • HM Treasury Seeks Input on the Future of Regulatory Coordination in Financial Services
    07/19/2019
    Launching the first phase of the Future Regulatory Framework Review, HM Treasury has issued a call for evidence on regulatory coordination in the financial services sector. The Financial Services Future Regulatory Framework Review was announced in March 2019 by the Chancellor in his Spring Statement. The Review will assess whether the U.K. financial services regulatory framework is fit for purpose, including being able to support the sector to grow in the future. Four key challenges for the sector are identified: operating outside of the EU, new relationships following Brexit, technological change and other global challenges, such as climate change. The Review will entail a comprehensive evaluation of the regulatory framework in a phased process. The first phase covers coordination by the U.K. regulators. Later phases will cover other areas, to be announced once the arrangements for the U.K.'s exit from the EU are clearer.

    The call for evidence focuses on how the government and regulators work together to ensure the best outcomes for the financial services sector, consumers of financial services and the U.K. Feedback is requested on what stakeholders consider works well and the areas for potential improvement. Where possible, responses should provide examples. Responses to the call for evidence should be submitted by October 18, 2019.
