29 March 2019: 5th Deloitte Brexit Lecture: "Brexit – Implications for the Financial Services Industry"


The UK will leave the European Union and thus the European Economic Area sometime in the foreseeable future. The current public debate is heated and the consequences remain uncertain. EU leaders agreed to Theresa May's withdrawal agreement. However, the House of Commons blocked this agreement, and we are yet again faced with even more uncertainty. Is there really going to be a hard Brexit? Will Theresa May, the UK Parliament, and the EU be able to agree upon a deal with so little time left? There are still several possible scenarios, and financial institutions and regulators continue to face unmanageable consequences. You may have participated in our previous Brexit Lectures in which we have already covered various aspects and the potential implications of Brexit. This time we would like to make the event even more interactive.

Please register here.


We invite you to attend a workshop to examine the key problems of the UK's withdrawal from the EU/EEA and to identify some practical challenges. These will be presented at the end of the workshop and will then serve as input topics for the panel discussion following the lecture. After this 90-minute workshop and a short coffee break, our prominent and committed speakers will take the floor during our lecture to shed light on the core Brexit issues.



We cordially invite you to join us for our 5th Brexit Lecture on 29 March 2019.  As in our previous Brexit Lectures, we would like to look at Brexit issues from different angles: Economic, Legal, and Regulatory Policy. These topics will be discussed in detail from the perspectives of various stakeholders.



Our speakers will cover perspectives of financial services institutions encountering challenges moving inbound and/or outbound, lobbyists, politicians and academics.

Our confirmed speakers will be:

  • Dr. Jens Zimmermann: "High Noon - How will the political Brexit journey continue?", Member German Bundestag, Deputy Chairman German-British Parliamentary Group, Germany
  • Dr. Alexander Thiele, Ph.D.: "Brexit: Political and legal implications for the European Union", University of Göttingen, Germany
  • Adrian Crampton: "Brexit from the perspective of German business", Deloitte, Germany
  • Dr. Jasmin Koelbl-Vogt: "Brexit-related topics from a bank's perspective", Board Member Citigroup, Germany

After the panel and podium discussion, you are invited to take part in the dialogue, and engage with the speakers and other participants from the financial services industry. Food and drinks will be served.

The speeches will be delivered in English. The Chatham House Rules will apply.
