The French regulator said Brexit could lead to a host of cliff-edge shocks.
“The accord is conditional on a vote in the British Parliament and the European Parliament.

Dominic Raab and Andrea Leadsom join the race to become the next prime minister after Theresa May announced her resignation on Friday.
The former Brexit secretary and ex-Commons leader became the latest to announce their bids for the Tory leadership, joining foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt, international development secretary Rory Stewart, health secretary Matt Hancock, former foreign secretary Boris Johnson, and former work and pensions secretary Esther McVey.
Setting out their stalls, both Mr Raab and Ms Leadsom said they would be prepared to order a no-deal Brexit in October if necessary.26 May '19 at 7:24 pm #20747

Jeremy Hunt Playing The Trump Card in the Leadership Vote
Mr Hunt told the Sunday Times: “If I was prime minister, I’d be the first prime minister in living memory who has been an entrepreneur by background.
“Doing deals is my bread and butter as someone who has set up their own business.”
Mr Hunt’s emphasis on his entrepreneurial past is being seen as swipe at Mr Johnson who reportedly once said “f*** business” in relation to Brexit.
In a reference to Brexit by way of mythical sea monsters, Mr Hunt said. “The real question is: who has got the experience to avoid the Scylla and Charybdis of no-deal or no Brexit. I’ve got very important experience in that respect.
“We can never take no-deal off the table but the best way of avoiding it is to make sure you have someone who is capable of negotiating a deal.”26 May '19 at 10:17 pm #20752ClemSnideParticipant
