Brexit – next steps

Our business in Europe

Important notice

The information on this page will not be updated from 31 December 2021 – after that date, content should only be used for historical reference.

Following the June 2016 UK referendum, the UK formally left the European Union (EU) on 31 January 2020 and then entered an Implementation Period.

During the Implementation Period, we used EU passporting rights* to carry out business in countries that are part of the European Single Market.

The passporting rights used by NatWest Markets Plc fell away when the Implementation Period ended on 31 December 2020. NatWest Markets Plc has continuing permissions to trade into the following countries: Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Norway, Portugal, and Sweden, but please note certain restrictions can apply.

NatWest Markets N.V. continues to use EU passporting rights.

Please contact the Brexit mailbox for further information.
