Survey: London Loses 7,500 Finance Jobs Over Brexit

Financial firms have switched more than 7,500 jobs to European locations outside the UK because of Brexit, a survey revealed today.

With Britain’s EU-exit transition period nearing an end, the pace of relocations has slowed, hampered in part by the coronavirus, added the survey by financial services group EY.

It added that Dublin is the most popular destination for staff relocations, followed by Luxembourg.

EY’s Financial Services Brexit Tracker also estimated that assets worth a combined £1.2 trillion (RM6.4 trillion) could be transferred.

“Many financial services firms had implemented the bulk of their relocation plans before the start of the year, and we saw very little movement in the first half of 2020,” said Omar Ali, UK financial services managing partner at EY.

“This is despite the pandemic and consequent restrictions to the movement of people, which is clearly making it harder to relocate people and adds complexity for those who were looking to commute to EU locations,” he added.

Ali said “firms are looking at new standards that will support the UK industry beyond the initial post-Brexit phase, ensuring it remains a leading global financial centre”. — AFP
