Scottish businesses have been too reluctant in the past to speak up about the possible implications of Scottish Independence. I believe we have a duty to find our voice in this debate, to help improve wider understanding of the likely economic implications of separating from our largest trading partner, the rest of the UK.

The global reputation of Scotland’s asset management and insurance industry is something which we should be building on and actively encouraging new investment in – not creating huge disincentives and uncertainty that would come with another referendum on independence
