Accounting for 12 percent of Britain’s economic output and employing more than 1 million people, London’s financial-services sector is central to the country’s position as a global leader.
The Bank of England, founded and headquartered in City of London, serves the entire U.K. and is one of the oldest banks in the world. The largest wholesaler of gold and silver, the London Bullion Market Association, is also in the heart of England’s capital. And the London Stock Exchange, the most influential bourse in Europe, is predicted to trade competitively for years—even after Britain leaves the EU.
Much of the financial activity in this city happens in three boroughs: the bustling streets of Central London or the “Square Mile”; the raw development at Canary Wharf; and the hushed, terraced streets of Mayfair.
Across the city, WeWork’s creative workspaces help drive productivity and solutions for the finance community. Our conveniently located offices are built to enhance outputs for you and your team, while our flexible agreements allow you to grow at your own pace in this ultra competitive market.
From our global network to our beautiful, intentionally designed spaces, WeWork’s offices in London will serve as a launchpad to success in this world-leading financial hub.
