Brexit update webinar: What does it mean for Australia & New Zealand

by FINSIA | 26 Mar 2019

FINSIA hosted a timely Brexit webinar, where Simon Culhane, CEO, Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI) from the UK and Australian British Chamber of Commerce’s CEO David McCredie gave an insightful update on political and economic developments leading up to the ‘D’ day for Brexit at the European Council Summit on 29 March.

Chris Whitehead, CEO, FINSIA asked questions about what Brexit means for Australia and New Zealand in terms of trade agreements and the potential impact on the worlds’ leading financial services market. Issues of trust and uncertainty for business were discussed and what the likely outcome will be in 10 days-time when a decision will be made to either Brexit without a deal, stay, or Brexit with a deal.

These are the 3 options to hand, however, there is talk of an 18 month to 2 year extension being called to prolong the final decision.  What was made evidently clear in the discussion was that business and consumers are needing some type of certainty regardless of the outcome and to understand what the new rules of business will be so they can figure it out and get on with the job.
