Important relocations because of Brexit
There are many decisions being made, based on the possible outcome of Brexit, but many companies cannot wait until the last moment before making important relocation decisions.
These decisions don’t make news in the tabloid press, because bad news is not good for the country, economy or readership circulation.
Chubb a well known security and insurance company is relocating to France. Other insurance companies based in the “Services” sector are also moving to Ireland, Belgium, Spain, Malta and Luxembourg, and they are not coming back.
