The European Union’s Proposed Intermediate Holding Company Regime

On November 23, 2016, the EU Commission published draft legislative proposals to amend a suite of EU prudential legislation, including the Fourth Capital Requirements Directive, to require that certain non-EU banks establish an EU intermediate holding company. This proposed requirement has been widely criticized in the United Kingdom and United States, with many alleging that the proposal is merely a retaliation against similar US measures. In addition, it could have significant implications for financial services firms with operations in the European Union.

In this talk we will examine:

  • The scope of the EU intermediate holding company regime
  • A comparison with the US intermediate holding company regime
  • The implications for firms with operations in the United Kingdom and European Union, particularly in light of the United Kingdom’s impending departure from the European Union
