    "1,500 money managers, payment firms and insurers have applied for permission to continue operating in the UK after Brexit.

    Around two-thirds had no prior physical operations in Britain, it said.

    It suggests London "is set to remain a key global financial centre", it added.

    "Many of these European firms will be opening offices for the first time, which is good news for UK professional advice firms across multiple industries including lawyers, accountants, consultants and recruiters." said Mike Johnson, managing consultant at Bovill.

    He added that business from the firms should provide a welcome boost to the service sector, too"

    Lol. :rolleyes:

    Hmm...

    From your link, a firm based in London reports that "About 1,000 EU finance firms are eyeing up opening offices in the UK"

    'Eyeing up'?

    Is that as good as done?

    Or deals done?

    Meanwhile of course Amsterdam has overtaken London as Europe’s largest share trading centre...

    I hope you have a large supply of those straws you always seem to be grasping at! :LOL:

    That text formatting looks suspiciously like the Daily Wail on-line stylie...:cautious:

    Is there an agenda there? I suppose ANY positive news (however obscure) helps deflect from the fact Amsterdam (of all places) has just usurped London to the top share trading centre.

    Yes, read that this morning, good news. London will always be a bigger than Europe as a centre for global finance, Language, rule of law, liquidity, you name it, Britain stands head and shoulders above Europe.

    Shares of European companies trading in Amsterdam was not a choice, it was a dictat by the EU, 'markets' don't like being told what to do. Multinationals have no loyalty to brexit Britain or Europe, their only concern is profit, they'll be keeping a very close eye on things like transaction taxes and regulation.

    A Freedom of Information (FOI) request by the firm found that 1,500 money managers, payment firms and insurers have applied for permission to continue operating in the UK after Brexit.

    The exact same announcement was made on 19th Jan 2020

    "Over 1,000 insurers, asset managers, banks and other financial services companies intend to set up an office in the UK for the first time after Brexit"
    https://www.theactuary.com/news/202...-financial-firms-open-uk-offices-after-brexit

    It was across the media for about 3 days then never appeared again.


    Clearly brexers have fallen for the same bolox this year.

    "Michael Johnson was a senior official of the UK’s former Department of Trade and Industry"



    A Tory says: "Tory Brexit is great"
    Brexers believe any old crap :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Sounds like you're arguing with yourself.

    "Continue" :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Gee brexers are claiming a huge win on something that might be able to "continue"

    It's the same as the claim of 60 trade deals.....(EU rollovers, every one).
