(Reuters) – Britain’s competition watchdog said on Tuesday it would not refer Charter Court Financial Services Group’s <CCFS.L> merger deal with OneSavings Bank <OSBO.L> to an in-depth investigation.

Charter Court Financial and OneSavings are set to create one of Britain’s biggest specialist lenders in a merger that will bolster their defences in the face of uncertainty brought on by Brexit.
