In this episode of “The Standard Formula” podcast, host Robert Chaplin is joined by investment management partner Greg Norman to discuss the Edinburgh Reforms, which serve as the UK’s most significant divergence to date from EU financial services regulation. Although the Reforms focus on Brexit freedoms, many of the proposals are aimed at regulation that originates domestically and are intended to secure the UK’s status as a leading financial center.
