BlackRock is basing alternative investment services in Paris while Lloyds Banking Group is believed to be looking to relocate some businesses.
Baillie Gifford joint senior partner Andrew Telfer (pictured) said: “Baillie Gifford has decided to establish a European office in the form of a new EU subsidiary company domiciled in Dublin, subject to authorisation from the Central Bank of Ireland, with the relevant regulatory and business licences.”
