New York has overtaken London to take the top spot as the world's leading financial centre, according to the latest Z/YEN Global Financial Centres Index (GFCI 24).

Responding, Stephen Jones, Chief Executive of UK Finance, said: “The UK remains a world-leading financial centre and it is important we work hard to maintain this position post-Brexit.

“We are and should always seek to be the safest, most transparent and best regulated place for banking and other financial service providers to do business.

“It is also crucial to provide firms with certainty over future financial services trade between the UK and EU and to maintain access to the best talent from Europe and around the world.”
