That’s because the firm has a fully licensed bank in Brussels from which it can sell most of its services around the European Union already.
“We are very well-positioned for it,” Cole-Fontayn said in an interview in London, referring to Brexit. “Not least because that has been our business model all along. If you aspire to be the investments company for the world, you had better be in all the major countries to a meaningful extent.”
