U.S. fund firm Eaton Vance opens Brexit hub in Dublin

LONDON (Reuters) - U.S. asset manager Eaton Vance has opened a Dublin office to cope with Brexit uncertainty, it said on Friday.

The $500 billion (383.7 billion pounds) asset manager joins firms such as Standard Life Aberdeen <SLA.L> and Legal & General <LGEN.L> in setting up bases in Ireland ahead of Britain's departure from the European Union next month.
