Comment on EU referendum result

On the decision for the UK to leave the EU, SFE Chief Executive Graeme Jones said:

"The financial services industry in Scotland has great strength in its diversity and a long history of weathering change and uncertainty.  The decision to leave the EU yesterday is the start of a long process and the industry will continue to remain focussed on doing its best for customers during this time. The Financial services industry is hugely important to the UK economy and ensuring we remain a globally competitive financial centre should be central to negotiations moving forward."
