企业就苏格兰独立后果预警

Standard Life warns on Scots ‘Yes’ vote

The campaign for Scottish Independence suffered a setback yesterday when two of the country’s biggest employers warned on the risks of a Yes vote, in a sign that companies are ready to break their silence on the issue.
苏格兰独立运动昨日遭遇一个挫折,苏格兰最大的两家雇主就独立带来的风险发出警告,这个迹象显示企业准备在这个问题上打破沉默。

Standard Life, the insurance company that employs 5,000 people north of the border, said constitutional changes could prompt it to shift large parts of operations out of Scotland in the most significant intervention by a big company.
在苏格兰拥有5000名雇员的保险公司标准人寿(Standard Life)表示,宪法的改变可能促使它将大部分业务转移出苏格兰,这是一家大型企业在“苏独”问题上最重大的介入。

Royal Bank of Scotland, which has 12,000 staff in the country, also warned a vote for independence could damage its credit rating, although its chief executive insisted the group would remain “neutral” on the outcome of the referendum.
在苏格兰拥有1.2万名雇员的苏格兰皇家银行(RBS)也警告称,如果投票结果支持独立,可能损害该行信用评级,尽管该行首席执行官坚称,该行将对公投结果保持“中立”。

Until now few companies have been willing to enter the independence debate for fear of upsetting customers and staff. However, if opinion polls continue to show nationalists narrowing the gap ahead of the vote in September then groups worried about the implications are more likely to speak out.
因为担心得罪顾客和员工,迄今没有几家企业愿意投入有关独立的辩论。然而,如果民意调查继续显示,在9月的公投临近之际,民族主义者不断缩小差距,那么担心独立后果的企业打破沉默的可能性会加大。

Standard Life, which has been based in Scotland since 1825, has started to register new entities in England, which would smooth any move south. The future of the currency is its biggest concern, say people familiar with the matter.
自1825年起总部一直设在苏格兰的标准人寿,已开始在英格兰注册新的实体,这将为平稳“南下”做好准备。知情人士表示,苏格兰货币的前景是该公司最大的担忧。

The Royal Bank of Scotland said in its annual report: “A vote in favour of Scottish independence would be likely to significantly impact the group’s credit ratings.”
苏格兰皇家银行在年报中表示:“假如投票结果支持苏格兰独立,可能对本集团的信用评价造成重大影响。”

Second in size only to the City of London, the Scottish financial and professional services industry supports 150,000 jobs and accounts for nearly 13 per cent of the Scottish economy, says lobby group TheCityUK.
游说团体TheCityUK表示,苏格兰的金融和专业服务业在规模上仅次于伦敦金融城(City of London),提供了15万就业岗位,占苏格兰经济的近13%。(FT)
