VIENNA (Reuters) – It is much too early to discuss any changes in the European Central Bank’s monetary policy in the aftermath of Britain’s vote to leave the EU, ECB Governing Council member Ewald Nowotny said on Friday.
“It is much too early to give detailed perspectives,” Nowotny, Austria’s central bank governor, told reporters. “At the moment, nothing has changed legally, Great Britain is still a full member of the EU.
“We have taken certain safety precautions against panic reactions. This is mostly about providing liquidity from the ECB and from the Bank of England as well,” he added.
