EU warns of liquidity risks, financial disruption from no-deal Brexit
03 Apr 2019

A no-deal Brexit would cause disruption and might also have an impact on liquidity in financial markets, the European Union commissioner in charge of financial services said on Tuesday in a stark reminder of the risks posed by a hard Brexit.

The EU has put in place a series of contingency measures to deal with a no-deal Brexit, which in the financial sector include a temporary recognition of Britain-based clearing houses which process multi-trillion-euro derivative transactions.

But EU Commissioner Valdis Dombrovskis sounded a warning note.

“We will not be able to mitigate all possible negative economic effects,” he told the economic committee of the European Parliament in a regular hearing.
