ICMA Warns On Brexit Cliff-edge06.26.2018
ICMA’s members in the UK, Continental Europe and beyond have real and increasingly pressing concerns about the cliff-edge risks of Brexit, which would fragment international debt capital markets and damage business in the real economy and financial stability.
