ECB tells banks might try avoiding its supervision after Brexit

Instead, other banks are considering setting up market units, supervised by national authorities.
Delivering a speech earlier in Helsinki, the head of the ECB's supervisory arm, Nouy had told that financial institutions might be shifting their operations to countries with less strict regulation or simply moving activities into the shadow banking sector.
