More than 1000 banks, asset managers, payments companies and insurers in the EU plan to open offices in post_Brexit so they can continue serving UK clients.

Not bad for a little island off the coast of Europe.

Anyway, here is a slightly less "loud" appraisal.

https://www.cityam.com/over-1000-eu-...-after-brexit/


EU firms have to open offices in the UK if they wish to continue to serve UK clients. UK firms have to do the same in the EU, and hundreds already have. That means about 7,000 UK jobs have moved with them to the EU countries, and 2,400 more will be hired by UK firms locally within the EU. It's not yet reported, that I can find, how many UK jobs will be created by the incoming EU firms' offices.

I'm pretty sure that international finance firms will do just fine either way, something I've said since the beginning. None of this was ever about, or for, "the people."

​​​​​​It's as though I had never posted.....

Posted it across what, 3 threads? It's as if "finally, something we can claim as a 'victory'". Despite it not being much of anything. Big news though, apparently.

But why did JRM move his finance outfit out of GREAT Britain into the EU if he was so confident in the ​​​​​​post Brexit success of this little island of the coast of Europe?
Can you explain this?

He and lots of others.

But look, a huge percentage of UK financial devices are conducted within the EU. Like most realities, Brexiteers either weren't aware nor did they think of that, or assumed in their hubris that the EU would just accept continuing access to the market without any membership.

So, as a contingency, they secured licences, office space, moved assets and a few thousand employees to the continent. It's still important to keep a legal presence in the UK, since there are also customers to serve. England may be a "modest" market, but there's no good reason to abandon it.

I posted the facts again because you only posted the figures for jobs moving OUT of the UK. Some posters do not fully read links so I thought I would post the numbers of EU-based businesses moving TO the UK to continue trade with the UK. 1400 in all. So far.

Why are you and the usual troop of posters so petty?

'England may be a "modest" market...'

I assume we are still talking about the financial sector when you say 'England may be a modest market'? I think we are number one in the world. You are posting such crap.

You didn't, though. You posted the numbers of EU-based businesses opening their first UK office. That isn't the same as the numbers of EU-based businesses "moving to the UK".

Jesus bloody Christ, give me a break, you petty idiots.

Read my post number 73. I made a slip of the tongue just now but, bloody hell, grow up the lot of you.

This is what I wrote in post 73.

'More than 1400 EU-based firms have applied for permission to operate in the UK after Brexit, with over 1000 of these planning to open their first UK office, according to a Freedom of Information request by Bovill.

Is that what he replied when you emailed him or is it your opinion?
