Sun 26th Apr 15, 15:16:25

Having on Friday mentioned it was looking at moving its headquarters overseas, a flotation of its British bank could speed its corporate exit from the country. According to sources cited by the paper, changes to UK banking laws forcing banks to 'ring-fence' retail banking operations made the move logical.
