“The non-dom changes will affect the investment management sector given the international profile of managers and business owners in the UK.
“The impact of the corporation tax and dividend tax changes also needs to be assessed. Based on what happened when the 50% tax rate was introduced we don’t expect significant movement of people - broader factors such as access to talent and networks make the UK an attractive place to do business.
“Close attention will need to be paid to the detail of these changes.”
