Supporting the banking industry through Brexit

The outcome of the EU Referendum will reshape banking and the financial sector in the coming years.

Both the UK and EU27 have an interest in the transition being an orderly one for banking and the millions of customers and clients that benefit from banking services, which are potentially implicated in a UK exit from the EU.

The BBA is working with governments and other sectors across Europe to limit disruption and deliver the most positive outcome for the people of the UK and Europe.

These pages contain quick briefs compiled by the BBA designed to help explain the major issues being faced by the banking industry and its customers in the UK and all the other countries of the EU in light of Brexit as well as articles and stories in the media where the BBA and its senior staff have commented publically on those issues.
