Simon Black, CEO, PPRO Group

The UK, led by London, has rapidly become a global centre for Financial Technology innovation. With an estimated 500 FinTech companies in the UK, Brexit will cost the taxman around five billion pounds* over the course of the next ten years, following the inevitable exit of the FinTech companies themselves. As well as London being a global financial hub, the UK offers specific regulatory benefits, that when combined with a massive pool of talent have made the UK the natural choice to be located both from a European perspective and for some companies, even as a global base. But with their status as financial institutions recognised across the EU and EEA under threat, all of these businesses will not wait for trade deals to be resolved. They will immediately begin forming plans to relocate at least some of their operations, and the majority of new jobs will be outside of the UK.

The likely FinTech winners would be Amsterdam, Dublin and Luxemburg; all cities that already boast a progressive regulatory environment, significant tax advantages, and international talent pools. Dublin would probably benefit most within Europe: It has a big tech scene, taxes are particularly low with a 12% corporate rate and major FinTech companies such as MasterCard, Apple, PayPal and First Data already have significant operations there providing critical mass.

In the UK, we now face years of uncertainty in the market. However, my advice would be to keep calm and carry on. Nothing will change for at least two years and all arrangements on a European level will work as they have until now. As with other FinTech businesses, PPRO Group will make sure to support our partners during this time of transition and uncertainty. We have planned for a Brexit to happen and there won’t be any disruption to our business and support for our partners and customers. We will make sure that we can all navigate any hurdles that might come up over the next few months as details of the Brexit are ironed out.

  8. I know this web page gives quality based articles and other data, is there any other web site which offers these kinds of things in quality?

  9. Very great post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wished to mention that I’ve really enjoyed surfing around your blog posts.
    After all I’ll be subscribing on your feed and I am hoping you write again soon!

  10. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just
    your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all.
    Nevertheless think about if you added some great pictures or videos to give your
    posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with
    pics and videos, this site could definitely be one of the best
    in its field. Amazing blog!

  11. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on several websites for about a
    year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be really appreciated!

  12. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally,
    it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving
    us something informative to read?

  13. When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new surveys are added- checkbox and already whenever a comment is added I receive four emails with similar comment. Perhaps there is by any means you can eliminate me from that service? Thanks!

  16. Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?

  17. Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time selecting to go with WordPress.

  18. Great, google took me stright here. thanks btw for this. Cheers!
