ABI reacts to Boris Johnson victory in the Conservative leadership ballot

Huw Evans, Director General of the ABI, said:

“Boris Johnson inherits a huge set of challenges and we should all hope that he will be able to overcome the current impasse and implement Brexit in an orderly fashion, with a transition period in place. The crucial longer-term test is whether our future economic relationship with the European Union avoids the UK’s world-leading insurance and long-term savings sector becoming a rule-taker.

“Beyond Brexit, we want to see the incoming Prime Minister and his new Government support our thriving and world-leading industry by improving the competitiveness of our tax and regulatory environment, boosting savings for retirement, keeping the cost of insurance down, improving the safety on our roads, and building a social care system that works for all.”
