Financial Services and TTIP

 

 

Although the EU and the US have sought to implement international standards for global regulation consistently, significant differences have arisen in the process of implementation. Some are due to differences in EU and US market structures, others cannot be fully justified on prudential grounds. These inconsistencies can lead to regulatory arbitrage and to the duplicative application of rules. The regulatory fragmentation weakens the resilience of financial markets and makes it more difficult for economies to recover.

 

Can the TTIP make sure the EU and US rules work together to prevent future crisis? Or will an inclusion of financial services in the TTIP weaken the standards already established on either side of the Atlantic?
