The EU Balance of Competences Review: Financial Services and the Free Movement of Capital

10th December 2013

This event was prompted by the Treasury review of the Balance of Competences and will assess how much power has moved from the UK to the EU in relation to financial services and the free movement of capital. It will examine how the EU institutions exercise their Treaty powers in this area; it will also analyse the impact of harmonisation of legislation and of supervisory convergence. Finally it will address the risks to accountability and effectiveness in the policy-making process.

The following specific topics will be explored:

  • Exchanges, trading venues and clearing
  • The Internal Market and harmonisation
  • The EU and international regulatory standards
  • The case law of the ECJ
  • Powers of the European Supervisory Authorities
  • EU competence in bank resolution
  • Banking Union and the Treaties
  • EU access for third country firms
  • Policy-making in the EU
  • Better Regulation
