The chances of a no-deal Brexit are becoming more likely every day. This could have a huge impact on the insurance sector, due to the level of regulation and interconnection between the UK and the EU financial systems.
On October 29th, CMS lawyers from the UK and the Netherlands discussed some of the key implications of Brexit for insurance market players active in the Netherlands and working with the UK's insurance market. The recording of the webinar can be found below, for your ease we have divided it intro six chapters.
Chapter 1-4 is presented by Pippa Tasker, CMS UK
Chapter 5-6 is presented by Leonard Böhmer, CMS NL
