TISA responds to vote to leave the EU
Responding to the result of the EU referendum David Dalton-Brown, TISA Director General said:
“Now that the UK has voted to leave the EU attention will be turned towards shaping the UK’s financial services regulation to reflect the changed circumstances for consumers and providers in the post-Brexit environment. Our focus will be on helping member firms get to grips with the practical implications of Brexit. Our technical working groups are going to be even busier as we reassess EU related financial services regulations and directives in light of the referendum result.”
