Britain backtracks over Brexit curbs on cross-border swaps trading – Reuters

Britain’s markets watchdog intervened hours before the country left the European Union’s single market on Thursday with a partial climbdown on curbs that risked disrupting swaps trades worth billions of euros.

Faced with the EU’s refusal to lift its own ban on trading swaps on platforms in London, Britain’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) said it would temporarily allow UK financial firms to use venues in the bloc if they do not have arrangements in place to execute the trade elsewhere, such as in the United States.

Industry officials say that some EU clients, such as smaller asset managers, would not be able to switch to a platform in [say] New York.

“We will consider by 31 March 2021 whether market or regulatory developments warrant a review of our approach,” the FCA said in a statement.

Peter Bevan, global financial regulations head at Linklaters law firm, said: “This last minute statement by the FCA… will enable UK firms to deal with clients subject to the EU rules without having to require them to sign up to swap execution facilities in [say] the U.S.”
