May in NY to talk Brexit
BRITISH Prime Minister Theresa May has met with Wall Street finance leaders to discuss the consequences of the Brexit vote.
Ms May, who is in New York for the UN General Assembly, saw officials from Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and other banks.
Other companies with big British investments at the meeting in New York included Amazon, IBM and BlackRock.
The gathering came as British officials debate how hard to push for access to the European Union market following the vote to exit the bloc.
London and Brussels are expected to conduct lengthy talks after Ms May triggers Article 50, which sets out how members can leave the union.
The five largest US banks, which employ some 40,000 people in London, are already talking with European regulators about obtaining banking licences in EU countries for a postBrexit Europe. –
