Europe Market Advisory Group

Our Europe Market Advisory Group (EMAG) sets and advises on how to best take forward the relationship with the EU, its Member States, and other European countries, providing guidance on how to most effectively engage on European regulatory and policy matters to deliver the greatest value to the industry.

Chaired by Michael Cole-Fontayn from JP Morgan, the group brings together senior member representatives as well as engaging subject matter experts and regional specialists in their institutions and networks.

Priorities of the Europe MAG

The agreement of the Windsor Framework presents an opportunity for TheCityUK and its members to strengthen relationships with our European counterparts and establish a new era of cooperation and collaboration in the financial and related professional services industry.

In order to harness the opportunity that this new political landscape presents, TheCityUK’s Europe MAG has developed a Europe Programme to guide its engagement with UK and EU stakeholders. This programme seeks to:

  • Gain a comprehensive understanding of members’ priority areas across the regulatory and policy landscape.
  • Utilise the various mechanisms available to engage with and influence UK and EU stakeholders and authorities on these priorities.
  • Secure normalisation of UK and EU trading relations and improvements for trade both ways in all areas of interest to TheCityUK’s members.
