Financial Services Will Be at Heart of Brexit Talks

British finance minister Philip Hammond reiterated on Tuesday that he wanted to prioritise the country’s financial services sector in talks about the country’s new relationship with the European Union.

“I certainly have been seeking to reassure financial services businesses that we will put their needs at the heart of the negotiation with the European Union,” Hammond told parliament.

“We understand their needs for market access. We also understand their needs to be able to engage the right skilled people,” he said.
