Banks lead business reaction to the Scottish referendum
Sterling wasn't the only thing with a spring in its step this morning. Business leaders who had expressed concerns about the possibility of independence will also be relieved that all those contingency plans for possible upheaval can be put away - for the foreseeable future at least.
Ross McEwan, the chief executive of the Royal Bank of Scotland, was the man facing the biggest headache if Scotland voted Yes.
The bank (major shareholder, HM Government) announced its "contingency plans" should there be a Yes vote last week.
That included moving its legal headquarters to London. The major threat was the possible downgrading of an independent Scotland's credit rating which would have affected the cost of borrowing for RBS.
There was also the risk that the Bank of England would not have remained the lender of last resort.
Scots 'Yes' would boost EU Brexit fears for business
In the independence debate, there has been much comment that businesses concerned about a "Yes" vote did not wake up to the perceived risks until the last moment.
The poll in the Sunday Times two weeks ago, giving "Yes" a small lead, concentrated minds and led to a number of businesses making statements on the possible fallout.
Insurance giant becomes latest to raise questions over independence
Now, I know this is starting to turn into something of a procession, but the latest chief executive to raise concerns about Scottish independence is the head of Aviva, Mark Wilson.

Sir Richard Branson in fresh warning on Scottish independence

Markets wake up to Scottish independence
To quote Sir Alex Ferguson - for some businesses who don't much like the look of independence, this is squeaky bum time.
Executives at Scottish based firms such as Standard Life, Royal Bank of Scotland and Weir Group arrived at their desks this morning to be greeted with falling share prices and fresh questions over what 19 September - the day after the Scottish referendum - might look like.
Independence - business leaders come out in support
Another day, another chapter in the "so, would independence be good for business?" debate.
This morning Business for Scotland (the clue is in the title) released a letter with 200 signatories saying that a Yes vote on September 18 would be good news for the Scottish economy.
Anti-independence businesses make their voice heard
After months of sotto voce claims that some businesses were simply too scared to put their head above the independence parapet, tonight comes the most significant move by anti-independence members of the UK business community ahead of the September vote.
A letter signed by 133 businesses with interests around the globe claims that the uncertainty of a Yes vote is "bad for business".
Bank of England gives 'reassurance' on Scottish independence vote
So, now we know. After much speculation and oblique references, Mark Carney has made it clear. The Bank of England has contingency plans whatever the outcome of the Scottish referendum.
This is what he said at the Inflation Report press conference this morning. The words are significant, and are his strongest on the issue of post-referendum planning.
BSkyB – James Murdoch’s master plan comes closer to fruition
Today's announcement that BSkyB has made a £4.9bn bid to buy Sky Deutschland and Sky Italia from 21st Century Fox is, on the surface, a straightforward play by a British pay-tv business to become a European giant.
Jeremy Darroch, BSkyB's chief executive, wants to run a business whose interests do not stop at the Channel. The deal would open up the German, Austrian and Italian pay-tv markets which are not as well developed as the UK's.
