Scotland would face an "enormous challenge" to produce their own currency if it became independent, according to the chair of HSBC, Douglas Flint.
He said: "Scotland would be faced with monetary policy implementation without representation - a very odd form of independence."

The Scottish referendum vote will take place on September 18.
