The Changing Landscape of International Finance Centres

The Changing Landscape of International Finance Centres

London has been a financial centre for centuries. Sir Mark Boleat discusses some of the reasons why London has achieved this status and how Brexit might impact this position.
Overview

London is currently deemed to be an international financial centre (IFC). Their role as an IFC is partly due to their rule of law, political stability, and high-quality education system, and partly due to the decisions of other countries that have made them less appealing to base businesses. Although not the sole reason for London’s IFC status, being a member of the European Union was a key advantage. Brexit will certainly impact London’s position.

Key learning objectives:

  • Explain London’s role as an IFC

  • Outline the features that have positively impacted London’s status as an IFC

  • Explain how Brexit will affect London’s position as an IFC
