LONDON (Reuters) – Tens of thousands of jobs in Britain’s financial services sector could be lost if euro clearing shifts to continental Europe and full access to the bloc’s single market is lost, top industry officials said on Tuesday.

London has become the world’s biggest center for clearing euro-denominated financial contracts, and some continental policymakers want this shifted to the euro zone after Brexit.

Already, banks with large London operations say they will step up lobbying European officials because they are running out of arguments to convince the British government the industry needs single market access.

Douglas - Flint - Chairman - HSBC - Bank

Douglas Flint, chairman of HSBC bank , told the lawmakers that banks without operations elsewhere in the EU will likely trigger migration plans immediately after EU divorce talks begin in March, estimating that “tens of thousands” of jobs are linked to EU “passporting” rights.
