ECB to Thwart Any Move to Lure British Banks Post-Brexit
The European Central Bank will counter any efforts to begin a race to the bottom on financial rules as European states scramble to lure companies away from Britain after its exit from the European Union.
ECB board member Sabine Lautenschläger said Wednesday that any entity that intends to transfer to the eurozone must meet their requirements, regardless of whether it comes from the United Kingdom or other European country.
Lautenschläger cautioned any financial institutions seeking to circumvent rules to keep rendering banking products and services without a passport should revise their plans. She said they prioritize having secure and stable banks.
The ECB official recognized UK-based banks are experiencing challenges to obtain a new license in the EU, saying the central bank would become accommodating in terms of approving methodologies used by banks in evaluating capital requirements and risks.
