Brexit gives one of the UK's most important sectors the chance to define its own agenda, he said.
Then why did Rees-Mogg move his own financial company to Dublin? Removed
Oooh, let me think. Is it because he's a self-centred, over-privileged, under-scrupulous slimeball with no moral compass? Removed

Yes, the fake patriot, who for some reason, just cannot bring himself to pay UK taxes.

So many Brexiteers are stupid.

simple....... lower taxes. If the UK starts to think of the opportunities as per the Barclays boss then you will see more financial companies heading to London rather than leaving

He didnt. He set up a Dublin based fund. Entirely reasonable and not due to Brexit. Check it on Youtube as you sir, are fake news :)

He didn’t, yet another baseless lie, he opened an additional office in Dublin, check Hansard or Google for the truth not the usual wokeist baseless tosh.

Lower corporation tax probably. The Irish better hope the EU can't scupper that, or I might come out of retirement to move back all the IT I moved there during our days in the EU. Very lucrative work.

The London Laundry will thrive as long as people who prosper in undemocratic countries need a place to clean their ill-gotten gains.

These same people have supported dictator gangster thugs whose brutal regimes terrorize their citizens. These same people who want to "invest" in London England.

And of course the "City" as it is today was created by the Evil Tories.

Never mind global warming causing the oceans to rise. They just rose 3 metres as a result of remainer tears after reading this piece. Well done BBC, crushing your own.......outstanding!
Singapore is globally known as being the WORST centre for financial secrecy. No wonder Bojo & his rich pals love it. The reality of Brexit is the Tories (aka English Nationalist Party) want to create a low-regulation, low tax Singapore-on-Thames (which will trigger off tariffs under current EU deal).

That's, low tax for the wealthy (Jim Ratcliffe), not you.

Low regulation = rip up the rule book.

You forgot the second and last reason for Brexit: lowering standards (for us, not the Fat Cats) "Standards good enough for India are good enough for Britain" (JRM).

From your link:

"0.97% of engineering giant Rolls-Royce"

So down about £1 bn with Rolls-Royce.

I bought RR shares in the Thatcher sell off at around £1.00 a share in 1987.

"London is a global financial centre. The EU have nothing that can compete."

Oh dear... Brexiteers and facts, eh?
London financial sector is the ninth largest in the OECD.

Number one is Luxembourg.
Belgium is at six.
The Netherlands are number eight.
Hmmm... That's three EU countries, I believe?

Mummy, Grandad says when he was young we used to be in the EU ?
That's right dear, it was like a prison but we escaped.
Will we ever have to go back mummy ?
No dear, they knocked it down from within and all the other people trapped inside followed us out and escaped so it had a happy ending. Now go to sleep and dont have nightmares about the EU, its all gone now

London is awash with dodgy money from very unpleasant sources - Russia being one. This will not change. However, it will be unwise to annoy the EU as it can very easily ruin the City's party

Apparently the BBC chap that censors good news about the UK and Brexit is off sick.....
Could you direct me to somewhere that doesn't censor them?

I've been desperately looking for a daily news story about how some firm is freed of red tape but I keep coming up against a red tape assault course.

"I think Brexit is more than likely on the positive side than on the negative side," he said."

I sense BBC staff head in hands in despair at a senior man in field not going along with their constant pro-remain agenda and bad news narrative...... Why won't these people follow the agreed script eh beeb! How difficult can it be to stay on negative Brexit message :)
The EU financial services industry is over-regulated to the point that it is starting to choke.
By scaling back the imported regulations, the UK can better align itself on the international stage and leave the EU to get on with their new murdering bedfellows in China.

To repeat, the current planned bands 1-9 cover over-50s and above
Hancock's "promise" runs beyond the Autumn, so while the oldies will be vaccinated, their kids will be expected to go back to work unprotected
Ergo, the young take the risk

I care not a jot about what any Banker says. These are the idiots that tanked the economy by trading in bonds comprised of sub prime mortgages and then demanded the tax payer bail then out. A pox on all their houses.

Anyone who’s care to educate themselves with FRTB and Basel IV will then know for a fact that we have the regulation here in London.

EU won’t implement until at least 2024 “best efforts” - now where have we heard “EU” and “best efforts” lately?

We also have the law, language, and talent...

So, the Brexit-supporting boss of a bank tells us to ignore the EU while the bank he runs shifts zillions of his bank's money from the UK (not in the EU) to Luxembourg and Ireland (which are in the EU). So he's saying one thing and doing another.

And we're surprised? Remind you of anyone.

It's such a non-story. Its an opinion of a banking boss making a suggestion about where we should go. I don't see the point of this article, it's an opinion piece and would be better placed on a tabloid
