Brexit can improve UK’s financial services industry, argues new report
As the most globally active financial services provider, the UK has the potential to be a key player in helping to develop a more efficient international regulatory framework after it leaves the EU.

The UK financial services industry is a major component of its economy. In 2016, UK financial services contributed 6.7% of the total UK GVA1, provided 3.1% of all jobs in the UK and generated a trade surplus of £68bn2 in the finance and insurance sectors.
