The emerging new geography of financial centers in Europe

What shape is the new financial continent of Europe?

Date: April 29, 2019, 12:30 pm Topic: Finance & Financial Regulation

The Brexit-induced uncertainties are eroding London’s position as the undisputed hub of European Finance, and are likely to result in a more distributed future geography of wholesale financial services in Europe. The focus of this event will be to take stock on that structural transformation’s early developments, and to map its possible next phases.

This event is open only to Bruegel’s members and a select group of experts.

A textbook condition of international finance breaks down. Economic research identifies the interplay between divergent monetary policies and new financial regulation as the source of the puzzle, and generates concerns about unintended consequences for financing conditions and financial stability.
