ESMA Issues Brexit Opinions to EU Regulators

A warning shot not only to the UK but also the EU27

The European Securities and Markets Authority (“ESMA”) foresees regulatory and arbitrage risks in Brexit and a potential “race to the bottom” as certain national regulators jostle for and grab UK market share. On 31 May 2017, ESMA delivered an Opinion on achieving a common approach to supervision among regulators in EEA member states in the context of Brexit.

ESMA concedes in the Opinion that “the UK plays a prominent role in the EU Single Market” and predicates the Opinion on the fact that the relocation of financial firms, activities and functions following the UK’s decision to withdraw from EU creates what it describes as “a unique situation which requires a common effort at EU level to ensure a consistent supervisory approach to safeguard investor protection, the orderly functioning of financial markets and financial stability.”
