The Financial Implications of a Possible 'Brexit'

Updated on

Former HSBC Holdings Plc Chief Executive Officer Michael Geoghegan is among 250 business leaders backing the push for the U.K. to leave the European Union.

Geoghegan was CEO of HSBC from 2006 until 2010 and his support for “Brexit” stands in contrast to the bank’s current management, which warns it will send 1,000 staff to Paris from London if voters side with withdrawal in the June 23 referendum.
