Victoria Hewson comments for The Telegraph

Victoria Hewson, IEA Head of Regulatory Affairs, has commented in The Telegraph on the EU’s post-Brexit attempt to raid the UK’s financial centre and drive business towards the Continent.

Victoria characterised the EU’s behaviour as “protectionist” and commented:

“The financial services industry really benefits from being able to access the City, especially its clearing markets.

So the move won’t even serve the EU’s own protectionist goals.”
