Bank of England Drops Warning Against Profit Distributions for Financial Market Infrastructures11/11/2021The Bank of England has written to the CEOs of all regulated U.K. financial market infrastructures notifying them that they are no longer expected to discuss prospective shareholder distributions with the BoE.
