The first in what is certain to be a steady stream of people, companies, and institutions leaving.

tbh, this was all known from the moment of brexit.

I have a friend who works at the EMA and she said practically the next day that the only thing to be settled was where she'd be re-locating. She's more or less been living out of a suitcase for the last 6 months, sharing a flat with a friend cos there was no point getting into leases or ownership when she knew she was off.

I think they're all relieved they can get on with the business of sorting out hwere to live.

We predicted it.  The SeriousPeople© scoffed firms, etc., would leave.

Tens of thousands of financial jobs will be going, it seems that Frankfurt has won the beauty contest and they're all off there. T

That said, FoM may not have the infrastructure in place to cope unless they go bonkers with building. there are already tales of a lack of school places for 2018.

But I'm sure there will be plenty of jobs moving to Paris and Dublin as well.

It will be interesting to see how many jobs evaporate during these moves and replaced by not every expert Expert Systems.
