According to a survey, London remains the world’s most attractive financial centre against some of its European rivals despite voting for Brexit.

The Z/Yen global financial centres index, which ranks cities on topics like infrastructure and professions, showed that the city is extending its league over others like New York, Dublin and Frankfurt.

This was mainly down to a growing number of firms growing in the sector, and wanting to plan to open new offices or boost staffing in such cities in order to maintain access to EU consumers and markets after the UK exits.
