- Steve Baker MP, Chair of the APPG on Economics, Money and Banking (chair)

The Solvency II directive aims to consolidate the existing European insurance directives and introduces an entirely new harmonised European solvency regime. Its supporters say it better reflects real economic risks yet its critics (especially in the UK) say it could have a disastrous effect on one of the country's few world-leading sectors.
This briefing will be a thought-provoking overview of the implications of this important yet under-reported European regulatory challenge. The event will look at the impact of European regulation and the state of the UK's ability to influence EU policy.
Demos Finance is a new financial services think tank being established at Demos.
The event will be held on 18 June from 4:00pm - 5:30pm in the House of Commons, Westminster. To RSVP please us at contact email@example.com or on 0207 367 6331.
