Our new series will help US-based organisations cut through the macroeconomic and geopolitical noise surrounding the UK. We’ll empower you to navigate the UK business environment and make the most of its unique growth opportunities.

When the UK voted to leave the EU, financial services firms took a deep breath – and then started planning. Three years on, the industry is primed to play a pivotal role in the new opportunities for growth ahead.

Part 4 of our UK Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) series takes a look at the UK financial services industry and the unique sweet spot of language, law and location that ensures it will remain the ideal location of choice for US investors.

We look in-depth at London – still the global number for US dollar clearing - and explore some of the immediate challenges facing the international banking and business agenda - and their implications for the UK.

We also look at what UK government is doing to accelerate economic growth, examine some of the key factors that continue to make the UK a magnet for global innovators and outline the critical role financial services will play in future growth.
