Anglo-Dutch Financial Services Dialogue

TheCityUK’s Anglo-Dutch Financial Services Dialogue (ADFSD) works to effectively influence European and global policy and regulation.

We recognise the importance of collaborating and working closely with our Dutch counterparts to focus on mutual priorities within our financial and related professional services industries. We seek to jointly agree research or policy proposals that will influence senior policymakers from the UK and the Netherlands. Together we present evidence and analysis drawn from these markets for the benefit of our customers and clients.

Our joint Chairs are Richard Kirby, Global Head of Financial Institutions, ING and Christophe Roupie, Head of Europe and Asia, MarketAxess. We meet twice a year, alternating between the UK and The Netherlands.

Priorities of the Anglo-Dutch Financial Services Dialogue are:

- To share expertise on the issues affecting the competitiveness of financial and related professional services.
- To engage with policymakers and regulators at supra-national, EU and national levels.
- To promote the competitive nature of our financial and related professional services industries and their contribution to the European economy and society.
- To collaborate on issues of strategic importance, with the aim of influencing policy when desired.
