'It’s not entirely business as usual'.
Financial companies in Brussels instructed employees to work from home as fears of a terror attack brought business in the Belgian capital to a standstill.
“It’s not entirely business as usual,” Pascal Brabant, a spokesman for Euronext Brussels, said by phone from the office. “There’s absolutely no impact on the stock exchange activities, but we decided to facilitate working from home.”
BNP Paribas Fortis SA told employees in a memo that “a very limited number of employees will ensure the most critical tasks in Brussels.”
“No real chaos,” said Dirk Thiels, head of investment management at KBC Asset Management. “Just a very quiet Brussels as the police is still looking for a terrorist on the loose.”
