The chancellor of the exchequer, Rishi Sunak, outlined the government’s planned approach to financial services post-Brexit, saying that the UK will remain an open, attractive international financial centre and will extend its global leadership in green finance and financial technology. He also announced the publication of a new guidance document setting out the UK’s approach to equivalence with overseas jurisdictions, as well as a package of equivalence decisions relating to the EU and EEA member states.
