AFME's CEO Adam Farkas said:
“We welcome today’s announcement by the UK treasury including the equivalence decisions announced with respect to the EU and the guidance on the UK’s approach to equivalence. We welcome the certainty provided through the equivalence decisions made today. We hope that further progress is made in the political negotiations and equivalence decisions by the EU and UK in further areas such as trading venues for the purposes of trading in shares and derivatives.
On Sustainable Finance, Adam Farkas said:
“Transition to sustainable economies require governments to lead by example. We thus warmly welcome the UK Government joining the ranks of sovereign issuers who have already issued or committed to issuing green debt to help fund the 2050 net zero carbon emissions targets.”
