French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said earlier this month that Brexit could bring "thousands of jobs to Paris," an opportunity that could be lost if the tax were imposed.A decision to impose the tax could benefit Ireland and Luxembourg, which have also actively courted the big banks and are not part of the group pursuing the tax.Governments have recently grown increasingly wary of pushing the tax while banks in the U.K. are deciding where to move staff to keep servicing clients inside the single market. Standard Chartered PLC, Nomura Holdings Inc. and Daiwa Securities Group Inc. have picked the German city for their EU headquarters. Citigroup Inc., Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Morgan Stanley are weighing a similar decision, people familiar with the matter said, asking not to be identified as the plans aren't public. HSBC Holdings PLC is the biggest non-French bank so far to opt for Paris.
