The capital of the UK has not even relevance for the finance sector in France, Germany, Italy or Russia the largest economies in Europe. In EUROPE.

The UK capital is one among 20 centers on the globe where financial industries are concentrated. Of course the UK capital is foremost important to the UK, a midsize island.

BTW, finance is one among 100 economic sectors.

Sadly enough I need to agree, that no belgian city really has an impressive skyline, maybe antwerp, because its located next to the river... but then again, not very special either...

you can compare Warsaw with rotterdam, the ammount of highrisebuildings is sort of equal!
only Rotterdam needs a 200m building for sure...maby the zalmhavetower will be a breaking point!

What a surprising conclusion for a London based think tank to come to the conclusion that London is the financial capital of the world.

In 2011, the Xinhua News Agency of China, partnering with the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and Dow Jones & Company of the United States, released the Xinhua-Dow Jones International Financial Centers Development Index. According to this index, the top ten financial centers in the world are:


NUMBER ONE...LONDON! not rated by a london based think tank but a chinese/american one!!

Congratulations. That ranking's from 2011 and that same link has a more recent article from May 2012 with NY as the #1 Most Economically Powerful City in the world. So at best you've proven nothing, at worst you've actually made my point for me. Well done.

Dear mods, just ban this paid fraud SO143 from this thread already! He created this thread purely to promote London and he is stirring shit up all the time. It's because of him, that there's only arguments here. Noone wants or needs him here!

Ok, two ratings puting London first and one rating (prepared in US) puting New York first. Agree? Or your point was somewhat different?
In my opinion currently we have duopoly between New York and London with New York having bigger stock exchange and London bigger in currency exchange and bond trades.

Well, just don't let it get to you. Opinions of a city shouldn't be based on just one user from the country. For example, I've come across plenty of French trolls/unpleasant users, but I still think Paris is an amazing city. Judge London as a city, not because of forum users...and SO143 doesn't even live in London anyway.

And remember, as I said in an earlier post, there's always the option to add users to your Ignore List! (I don't know what the French translation is, but it's an option on your user profile).

Ignoring doesn't help much, when others quote him and basicly the whole discussion was hijacked by that paid troll. Now all people here talk about London's status as a financial hub.

Don't get the LSE confused with the LME.

I actually agree with you. By some measures London is 1, by others NY is 1. My only intention was to show that the of those 3 rankings, one is a year old, the American based one has NY as 1, and the English based one has London as 1. So clearly there isn't an overarching consensus.

Also, after actually reading the International Financial Centres Development Index, one of the rankings previous posters have referred to to put London ahead of NY, it actually ranks NY ahead of London, even though the Wikipedia page claims the report puts London ahead of NY. Here's the actual report in pdf form, rankings on page 5 and 6.

In Europe (read the European Union) only Frankfurt matters as a financial hub. Why?
Because the European Central Bank in Frankfurt has the power to create hundreds of billion euros in order to inflate the Eurozone economy and in consequence is able to stabilise the largest market economy on the globe.

That is financial power !

And it is backed by Berlin, Paris, Rome, Brussels politically.

The highest inner city skyline in Europe: BERLIN !
