    Digital transformation is a means of survival in the turbulent times that we are currently experiencing and that still lie ahead of us, according to Professor Stijn Viaene. “We have to make this cumbersome tanker change course.

  8. How to Mitigate the Shock of Brexit to Financial Services in the EU

    Most ways to resolve the current stalemate in the UK parliament with respect to Brexit imply that the UK will no longer be part of the internal market for financial services.

He also suggests that the EU and the UK jointly work to enhance and improve equivalence requirements for suppliers of financial services to markets in both the UK and the EU.
