On 7 September 2021, TheCityUK published a new international strategy that seeks to return the UK to being the world’s leading international financial centre within five years. The international strategy – ‘Making the UK the leading global financial centre’ – sets out a plan for future success, with a focus on bolstering competitiveness and attractiveness. The plan underlines the need to strengthen market share in existing areas of advantage, such as FinTech. It also calls for the UK to build its capabilities in future areas of global growth where the UK has a strong competitive advantage, such as data and technology, global ESG markets, international investment opportunities and risk management.
