The UK financial and related professional services industry is thriving, contributing to £174 billion to the economy in 2012; 8% of GDP in the same year. It employs more than one million people, a third of which are based within the City of London alone, a key hub of global commerce and home to some of world’s leading financial organisations.
The industry is made up of organisations operating in banking, insurance, fund management, securities, other financial services, accounting services, management consultancy and legal services.
