Brexit preparedness

Brexit and broader geopolitical change is a constant challenge for Scotland’s financial services firms and we continue our work to ensure the interests of the industry are best represented.

While Brexit is unprecedented, the financial services sector has a track record of responding well to market changes and is adept in risk mitigation. As the date for the UK’s exit from the EU draws nearer, we know financial services companies continue to prepare and implement appropriate plans implemented for a range of possible scenarios which is absolutely necessary.

Further Brexit information for businesses can be found online via the Scottish Government’s PrepareforBrexit.scot website and the UK Government’s Prepare Your Business for EU exit pages.

In the meantime, SFE will continue to make the case for an orderly withdrawal from the European Union so that Scotland’s financial services industry may serve clients and customers without disruption.
