Hosted by the BBA and organised by the CSFI – with Graham Bishop. The meeting opened with tributes to John-Paul Dryden who died suddenly and prematurely last week. He was to have been my fellow speaker today, and we all remembered fondly his contributions over the years.


Topics included:

·        Brexit: Foreign Secretary Hammond’s article in Politico that set out a four-point package for reform; YouGov polling on the potential electoral impact of a successful re-negotiation by Prime Minister Cameron; the launch by the House of Commons Treasury Committee of an Enquiry into the economic and financial costs and benefits of the UK’s membership of the EU

·        Capital markets Union (CMU): General positive reactions from professional associations; but possible problems foreseen from the European Commission’s securitisation proposals.

·        Financial supervision architecture: the ECB’s vision 2020 (T2S/T2 and collateral; supporting instant payments); BCBS Chair/ECB Governor Ingves: the post-crisis architecture is now clear; ECB President Draghi speaking to ECON on the Five Presidents Report.
