Brexit: Japanese banks tell Philip Hammond they will move UK jobs to Europe within half a year

Firms including Nomura demand clarity in approach to withdrawl from union or they will begin relocating functions to Europe

Japanese banks have told Philip Hammond they will begin moving operations to the EU within six months unless the Government can provide clarity on the UK’s access to the single market.
Banks including Nomura and Daiwa Capital Markets, which employ thousands of people in Britain, reportedly held a “frank” meeting with the Chancellor on 1 December.
According to the Financial Times, one senior Japanese finance executive said it “would be better for our EU-based customers to have an alternative hub”.

The Chancellor met with top bank bosses in Tokyo again on Thursday, when they reiterated fears about the potential negative impact of Brexit on their UK businesses and urged clarity from the Government about its plans.
Mr Hammond said: “It’s fairly binary for them: they either have access to their markets or they don’t have access.
"If they have full access to the markets from London they can continue operating as now. If they don’t, they will have to restructure the way their operations address the European market.

“I've been seeking to cement the UK-Japanese bilateral relationship,” Hammond told reporters. “Japan is Britain's second-most-important foreign direct investor after the United States.”
Japanese banks employ 5,000 people, mostly in London, with insurers and other financial groups employing many thousands more.
Brexit has already prompted Japan’s largest banking group, Mitsubishi, to begin the move. It has beefed up its Amsterdam operation and begun moving staff from London since the June vote.

Japanese firms, like their US counterparts, have demanded confirmation that passporting would be maintained after the split, an assurance that Mr Hammond simply cannot give at present.
Passporting allows EU firms to sell their services across the EU’s 31 nations while only being subject to one set of regulations. Without confirmation, the exodus will reportedly begin in mid-2017.
Philip Hammond is hoping to secure a “transitional deal” which will ensure a “smooth and orderly Brexit” rather than a cliff edge in 2019, when the two-year negotiation period will end. Without such a deal, firms face a mountain of rule changes and regulatory uncertainty.
In September the Japanese government issued an unprecedented warning that the country’s firms would move their headquarters out of Britain “if EU laws cease to be applicable”.
Japanese firms employ around 140,000 people in the UK, with Nomura bank, Hitachi and carmakers Honda, Nissan and Toyota all having major bases in the country.
On Wednesday, it was revealed that 40 per cent of US firms with UK bases said they are considering moving to the EU because of uncertainty over Brexit.

It certainly isn't and there will more looking to locate elsewhere - a lot more.

But many of the 'leavers' don't give a damn as long as they can control immigration and kick around the ethnics, the country can go to hell.

Just a reminder. David Cameron made a commitment that he would go to Brussels and negotiate a new deal for the UK with the EU and he would put that to the people of this country in the form of a referendum.

So the people voted 'Leave' by a small majotity base on HIS deal.

So in effect we should just leave and kick in Artiicle 50 staright away and be on the way out.

But no. The government now want to negotiate a new deal - a better one that Cameron got.

So that being the case the people of the UK should have the right to vote and say whether the want to leave or remain based on a new deall.

Exactly what is undemocratic about that?

The only thing fast is you jumping in quickly and spewing out your usual guff.
The only thing thick is you Tom.
You are the forum moron.
