ZEW is pleased to announce its next Lunch Debate, entitled "Brexit and its Implications for the Financial Markets". The event aims to shed light on the effects of the Brexit referendum on European capital markets and the development of financial centres. Will London survive as a financial centre after Brexit? Will the financial markets across Europe continue to be stable? And what are the long-term effects on competitiveness, employment and investment in the EU? These are just some of the questions that will be addressed in what promises to be a thought-provoking debate.


  • Prof. Dr. Sascha Steffen (Frankfurt School of Finance & Management, until August 2017 Head of ZEW's Research Department "International Finance and Financial Management")
  • Karin Dohm (Deutsche Bank, Global Head of Regulatory Affairs)
  • Prof. Dr. Danuta Hübner (European Parliament – Chair of the Committee for Constitutional Affairs, former Commissioner for Regional Policy)
  • Natacha Valla, Ph.D. (European Investment Bank and CEPII - leading French think tank in international economics)
