Response to the Queen’s Speech: Financial Services Bill

Commenting on the Queen’s Speech, Dr Kay Swinburne, Vice Chair of Financial Services at KPMG UK, said: “A new regulatory framework for financial services will help guide financial services institutions into a new era outside of the EU. Financial institutions are hungry for stability and clarity on the future regulatory environment. The significance of the sector to the UK economy makes this a clear priority for the Government.

“For reform to be a success, any Act would need to ensure that we maintain a strong, resilient, and competitive sector that can continue to drive job creation, investment, growth and service exports for the benefit of the whole country. One of the most pressing concerns for leaders across the sector is how parliamentary oversight of financial regulation will evolve and ensure appropriate accountability, but also greater engagement with stakeholders to help shape the future of financial services in the UK.”

 

ENDS.
