    Abstract

    The purpose of this paper is to review the performance of Scotland’s financial services (FS) sector and its three principal sub-sectors and to draw out strategic issues for the sector and policy makers in Scotland to consider. The paper draws on analysis of official economic statistics undertaken by economists at the Fraser of Allander Institute and work by HMT, as well as from conversations with senior members of Scotland’s financial community.
