FRANKFURT (Reuters) - British-based banks looking to keep their access to the European Union markets need to move quickly, regardless of the outcome of exit negotiations, European Central Bank supervisor Daniele Nouy said on Tuesday.
“The clock is ticking, and the affected banks have to move quickly,” Nouy told a conference in Frankfurt. “They have to move quickly even though the final outcome of the negotiations is still uncertain.”
She added that larger banks are making good progress but some smaller lenders appeared to be delaying their decision on whether to relocate to the EU.
