Information on Brexit for the financial sector

Banco de Portugal is monitoring the process for the United Kingdom's departure from the European Union (Brexit), which took place on 31 January 2020, and its potential impact on the financial system.

Banco de Portugal set up a working group in February 2017, coordinated by José de Matos, advisor to the Board of Directors. The working group brings together experts from the various departments of the Bank responsible for the areas where the impact of Brexit will probably be felt the most and that participate in international working groups where Brexit-related issues are discussed.

Banco de Portugal has held discussions with the financial sector and, in particular, with the organisations representing its institutions.

On this page, Banco de Portugal shares with financial institutions and the general public a range of relevant information on Brexit.
