DERBY, England Oct 14 Deputy Bank of England
Governor Ben Broadbent said on Friday that Britain's banking
system had coped with the shock result of Britain's decision to
leave the European Union in June because of reforms made after
the global financial crisis.
"The huge shock of the referendum created potential for
precisely the panic about the banking system there had been in
2008 -- but withdrawal of money from the banks didn't happen,
because there was much more capital on balance sheets, because
of regulation," Broadbent said at a public meeting.
