A British vote to leave the European Union would hit large German banks, given their heavy exposure to London, the head of German financial watchdog Bafin said in an interview with German newspaper Tagesspiegel.
Bafin President Felix Hufeld told the newspaper in an article to be published on Monday that he hoped Britons would vote to remain in the European Union.
If not, “the biggest banks would have the biggest problems,” the newspaper quoted Hufeld as saying. “They have the most activities in, and with, London,” he said.
