Companies exposed to risk from BREXIT are preparing to report this risk and provide evidence of resilience and business continuity arrangements to shareholders and customers.

Watch this programme to hear financial and business leaders from Ireland take you through how they have become one of the strongest centres for international businesses needing a base in the EU.

Impacts of BREXIT

“If you are a foreign institution hubbing into Europe from London, you really have no choice other than to think very quickly and carefully how to replicate the access to Europe that you would lose once the UK leaves the European Union.”

Douglas Flint CBE
Group Chairman, HSBC

“I am talking about not just the clearing jobs themselves, which number in the few thousands, but the very large array of ancillary functions, whether syndications, trading, treasury management, middle office, back office, risk management or software”
