European banks withdrawn from the UK € € 350 billion due to Brexit

43
Banks of the countries of the European Union withdrew from the United Kingdom assets worth € 350 billion since June 2016, transmits RIA News.




According to the Financial Times newspaper, which cites official statistics, “the assets of banks located in the UK from EU member states fell by 17% over the year - from 1,94 to 1,59 trillion euros; total financial liabilities also fell from 1,67 to 1,34 trillion euros. ”

Experts associate the withdrawal of assets with concerns about possible losses due to Brexit and expect that this trend will continue until March of the 2019 year, when Britain finally leaves the EU.

In the course of the survey, “a third of European financial institutions called uncertainty due to possible changes in the legal rules governing financial contracts, data protection and execution of court decisions,” the newspaper writes.

It clarifies that uncertainty may arise "in the event of the kingdom leaving the union without a new agreement."

Negotiations on the conditions for leaving the UK from the EU have been going on since the summer of 2017. Their main themes are “the rights of citizens of divorcing regions, the Irish border and the settlement of the financial obligations of the United Kingdom to the European Union.”

Until the parties have achieved the desired progress. Because of this, Brussels does not want to move to the second phase: to discuss the structure of the future EU partnership with the UK, as well as a possible transitional period in relations.

        But for simple things: they are afraid that the UK will throw the EU on the headstock.

        First you need a desire to get them out of there! recourse And those who hold them there, obviously do not burn with such a desire.

          Of course they don’t burn, we have even ordinary people, bank accounts are blocked - under the cover of the law on combating extremism, bankers have found a good way to use the funds and receive a percentage of the profit from them during the time the account is blocked.

        Not. The total external debt of Russia on January 1, 2017 amounted to 514,132 billion dollars, having decreased over the past year by 5 billion, and gold reserves, the size of which is approximately 100 billion dollars less, serve as a kind of guarantee. Moreover, the overwhelming majority of creditors are state-owned companies. Who will give you the approval?

    It is a pity that the British exit from the EU did not become a real start to the collapse of this office! For the worse our enemies, the calmer we are.

      The real beginning of the collapse will be the adoption of Ukraine into the EU. Understanding this, the Europeans are in every way delaying the inevitable. But Ukrainians, a female dog, stubborn - still, by not washing so much, they will achieve membership in the European Union! And then RIP EU yes

    People that you drive! Do you think that the Angles did not calculate all the losses? They will have all the rules and will trade with the EU, but apparently some consequences with Europe are expected and it is easier for them to donate more than 350 billion to secure themselves

      "do not scream about the Russian trace ..."

      Well, yes, but only until it becomes clear that these are lardy of Russian bureaucrats and oligarchs, which can be confiscated or "frozen" by the British Themis.

    And the advantages of Brexit will appear even later.

    It is necessary to objectively look at the situation.
    Objectively, UK GDP is growing.
    And no less than in Russia.
    And unemployment after the launch of the topic of Brexitis is reduced.
    Personally, I am happy for ordinary Britons.
    Especially if they can reduce the flow of migration.

      Not ... Germany is strong in technology, all kinds of useful mechanical engineering.
      And in the sense of concentration of capital, banks - the Germans are "poor."
      England very early opened the first major banks, the first insurance
      companies, first exchanges. And what’s important - they have independent since the Middle Ages
      judicial system. All trade (and criminal) squabbles from around the world bring them to arbitration
      and courts. Even Russia, when it wants to get the debt from Ukraine, where does it go? - to the London court.

    What is there to be surprised for European banks when London itself transfers money to Hong Kong and willingly participates in the bank created by the BRICS - a competitor to the IMF? That is, London itself is not very confident in the bright future of London's banks and exchanges!
