Global investors say City of London is top for talent

A new survey reveals that the vast majority of investors believe London has the best talent pool for financial services in Europe. Of the 101 global institutions surveyed by the City of London Corporation, 90 said London tops the talent stakes. Meanwhile, a survey of more than 2.5k corporate decision makers across Europe showed London coming out well ahead of rivals, such as Paris and Frankfurt, on the issue of talent and being the “best city for business.” The majority of the institutional investors in the survey cited London as the best European city for business, with 58% opting for the City compared to Dublin, the nearest competitor, on 22%. Catherine McGuinness, Policy Chair of the City of London Corporation said, “People and talent are more crucial than ever to business operations, decisions and global competitiveness. It is clear that London continues to lead the way as an international business centre and location for companies seeking access to its unrivalled talent and amenities.”
