On 7 September 2016 Phillip Hammond, Chancellor of the Exchequer, hosted a meeting with members of the European Financial Services Chairmen's Advisory Committee (EFSCAC) to discuss issues relating to the UK financial services industry in preparation for negotiations between the UK and the EU following Brexit. The meeting also covered the attendees’ views on how the Government can offer support to the industry in the lead up to the Autumn Statement.

As part of the Chancellor’s engagement with a variety of sectors including technology and financial services, the HM Treasury has confirmed that the Chancellor will also hold a series of bilateral and group discussions with domestic and international firms ahead of chairing a further roundtable with representatives from financial services firms in October 2016.
