Brexit will affect Swedish financial services suppliers. Potentially, the up-coming negotiations on the future relationship between the EU and the United Kingdom (UK) can soften any potential negative impact. The aim of this report is to identify the trade model that best minimizes these negative effects. The findings are based only on trade concerns; other policy goals are not taken into account.
This report is a continuation of the National Board of Trade’s earlier report on Brexit: After Brexit – Recommendations for Swedish priorities in upcoming negotiations – a summary (Kommerskollegium, 2018).
Because this English version is a summary, unlike the Swedish version, it does not include the in-depth description of EU-internal regulations and how financial services are regulated by different trade agreements.
