Although the U.K. will have left the EU, EU law will apply in the U.K. until the transitional or implementation period ends on December 31, 2020. The FCA confirmed that EEA firms wanting to enter the Temporary Permissions Regime or fund managers wanting to continue to market funds in the U.K. under the Temporary Marketing Permissions Regime had until the end of the day on January 30, 2020 to notify the FCA.
