Currency, Banking & Financial Services after the Scottish Referendum

On Wednesday 24 July 2013 the British Academy and the Royal Society of Edinburgh held an invitation-only Policy Forum to discuss questions surrounding banking and financial services in the aftermath of the referendum on Scottish independence. The intention of this forum was to discuss the currency options available to an independent Scotland and the implications of that choice for the rest of the UK, and the knock-on implications for fiscal rules and financial regulation.

A report of the key discussions and debates from this forum will be produced some time after the event.
