Brexit Implementation

Navigating a post-Brexit world with ACA

Now that the Brexit transition period has closed, many firms globally need to consider and even adapt their business models and regulatory registration arrangements to continue operating within both the UK and the EEA. This means:

  • Understanding the EU/UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement and the medium-term for financial regulation in both areas
  • European Economic Area (EEA)-based and third-country asset management firms need to consider how to maintain access to the UK market
  • UK firms need to seek a replacement to passporting in order to continue to access EEA markets.

Complementary services

If you are a firm with a UK presence, we can support you with the updating of your policies, procedures and compliance manuals, reflecting new rules and regulations following the exit of the UK from the European Union.

Most firms marketing into the European Economic Area are required to perform ‘Transparency’ or ‘Annex IV’ reporting. The scale and scope of this reporting can be significant. Our prudential specialists are on hand to help simplify this complex reporting requirement. 

We can support you with a range of solutions to assist with the ongoing compliance obligations arising from rules promulgated by the UK FCA – be they for fully authorised firms or third country branches. These include:

  • MiFID II reviews
  • SM&CR support & implementation
