"The industry will no doubt welcome the Chancellor’s speech today. It demonstrates a good degree of progress since last year and reflects positively on the many strengths of the UK financial services sector; its importance to the economy as well as the need for it to continue to attract world class talent across the country. The strategy outlined for the future, with its focus on open, well-regulated markets acting nimbly to deliver digital transformation and address the climate crisis, will help the industry navigate its way through the many opportunities and challenges that the next few years will bring. It is clear that the industry will need to engage fully with the detail of this ambitious programme to ensure it delivers the desired outcomes, at the same time as supporting the recovery from the pandemic. This will require rigorous prioritisation of regulatory and other policy initiatives over coming years.”
