This report, commissioned by Molly and written by Victor Anderson, explores what could happen to the finance sector as a result of Brexit. It looks at how plans for the UK to leave the EU could be used as an opportunity to refashion the finance sector to serve everyone, not just the few.

Responding to the report, Molly said:

“This report explores how the economic and political crisis thrown up by the decision to leave the EU can be used to our advantage. Whether or not we leave the EU, we can respond positively by ensuring that the long shadow of the financial crisis can be the catalyst for long-lasting and socially and environmentally beneficial changes to our financial system.”

The report draws on speculation and forecasts about Brexit; analyses of the City of London as the hub of the UK’s and the world’s finance; reports and analyses from think-tanks and experts such as New Economics Foundation, the Federation of Small Businesses, The University of Birmingham, and the Bretton Woods Project.
