Abstract

his paper explores the potential impact of BREXIT on the Scottish financial services sector. For the purpose of this discussion the assumption is that Scotland remains part of the UK. At present there is clarity neither as to what BREXIT will mean for the UK nor how this will play out for the UK financial sector. There is also a good deal of uncertainty regarding Scotland’s future constitutional arrangements with regard to relationships both with the UK and with the EU.
Given the extent of these uncertainties,we decided to omit reference to the possibility of a second independence referendum and what that might mean for the sector. That could be another topic for another day.
