MRM launches EU intelligence service to help financial services firms counter Brexit risks

The EU intelligence service will offer a comprehensive guide to upcoming events in the EU with a weekly summary aimed at demystifying core issues. The service will cover EU institutions and also include coverage of the EU referendum as it unfolds.

The new service follows increased interest from firms that recognise the growing importance of EU regulation and possibility of a 'Brexit', or Britain's exit from the EU, according to MRM.

Havard Hughes, MRM’s head of public and regulatory affairs, said: “The Scottish referendum saw seismic shifts in the value of sterling and in company valuations as the UK seemingly lurched towards break-up. Likewise, a Brexit vote could unleash massive uncertainty for firms and even for the future prospects of EU based employees in London.

“In response to all this uncertainty and increasing concern in the City that an EU exit will have a catastrophic effect on financial services firms, we are moving to provide our clients with this vital service to keep them abreast of policy developments.”
