    Ok good but why isn’t government putting this kind of emphasis on firms affected by eu substance? If only two thousand of the 15k firms affected puts physical boots here it will have immesurably mors impact than anything fintech will do

    Now we just need another 3,999 of these and we will be ok. Government’s total reliance on this industry as a salve to our economic problems is both myopic and worrying

    Apollo are already here as they own Athene Life and are buying Aspen. Probably will be some job losses at Aspen this year
