The truth is finance is moving to London

Posted on

Any amount of rubbish is being written about people flooding out of the UK because of the domicile rule changes. But as the FT reports:

General Electric is moving the headquarters of its core consumer finance division from Connecticut to London in a move symbolising a shift in the US conglomerate's centre of gravity.

The decision by one of the largest and oldest companies in the US to relocate a business with $25bn (£13bn) of revenues a year to London underlines the increasingly global nature of GE. It is also a boost for the UK capital, which has been challenging New York's supremacy as a global financial centre.

There's the hard fact of the matter. Finance is coming to London. So lets stop all the complete nonsense, now.
