Notwithstanding anyone's personal political leanings, I'd be interested to get the thoughts of the insurance sector on the UK's continuing membership in the EU.
Flint Hyde recruit all over the world, as well as in Continental Europe, and certainly the free movement of people allows us to be more far-reaching when searching for the best talent. Is this a concern for Executives in the sector?
Accountancy firm Deloitte said 62 percent of CFOs from FTSE 350 and other large private companies backed Britain’s continued membership of the EU, down from 74 percent in the second quarter of 2015.

David Cameron has promised a referendum by the end of 2017 on whether Britain should stay in the EU but last month gave a strong hint he hopes to hold the vote in 2016. “A clear majority of CFOs continue to favor the UK remaining in the EU, but the proportion of those expressing unqualified support has fallen. This mirrors what we have seen from the broader public in opinion polls in the last six months,”
