Aucun signe de perte de sa position
Britain’s departure from the trading bloc has led to some politicians and economists predicting London will lose its pre-eminent status as a financial center, but there are few signs of that happening yet.
London was placed first, followed by New York, Hong Kong and Singapore in the Z/Yen global financial centers index (GFCI), which ranks 92 financial centers on factors such as infrastructure and access to high quality staff. New York was 24 points behind the British capital, the biggest gap between the two since the survey started in 2007.
New York’s ranking fell 24 points from last year, the largest fall among the top contenders, a dip the survey’s authors said was “presumably due to fears over U.S. trade”. Frankfurt has moved up to 11th in the table from 23rd a year ago and Dublin has moved to 30th from 33rd
