LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's draft divorce settlement and declaration on future trading relations would leave the country without a say over European Union financial rules, but are preferable to a no-deal Brexit, the Financial Conduct Authority said on Thursday.

"An exit without agreement would carry much higher risk and carry significant uncertainty for us and for firms. Against that background, and viewed through the lens of our statutory objectives, the draft Withdrawal Agreement and the outline political declaration are preferable steps," the FCA said in a report.
