Property Week is reporting a 40% increase in Central London office take-up: Central London office take-up increases 40%

And Bloomberg is reporting an office boom along the construction of the Crossrail line: Goldman to Axa Ride London’s Crossrail Office Boom



The news comes as two major corporations seek to move their finance operations to London:


Huawei to open London office to manage global finances
Financial Times
4 August 2013


Quote:
Huawei will establish a London-based team to manage the Chinese telecoms manufacturer’s international finances in the latest sign that the privately owned group is embracing western practices.

The office, to be based in the City, will carry out a broad range of financial activities, including treasury and risk management functions.

The company has hired several senior bankers to run the office, which is still being set up, and has quietly begun recruiting in the City for a team to carry out a range of risk management activities, covering areas such as foreign exchange risk, counterparty risk and country risk.

The company confirmed that the centre was being planned but declined to add further details.

The office will probably support the group’s relationship with global banks and financial institutions that fund many of its largest customers. Mobile operators sometimes borrow money to buy equipment from telecoms equipment vendors such as Huawei, although the Chinese group can act as an intermediary in such negotiations.

French oil giant Total to move finance HQ from Paris to London
Evening Standard
5 August 2013


Quote:
France’s biggest oil company said today it would move its finance department from Paris to London.

The decision was described by City insiders as a significant boost for London’s status as the financial capital of Europe.

Total wants to move its corporate treasury department to London to be nearer to stock market analysts who cover the company and raise its profile with international investors.

The oil giant is talking about moving 60 staff from its treasury department to London as well as about 10 people in investor relations.

“The idea is to get closer to London, which is the oil trading and financial centre of Europe to allow the group to improve its international visibility,” a Total spokesman said.

However, the move is likely to ruffle feathers with the Socialist government of Francois Hollande, whose campaign pledges to raise taxes on the rich has infuriated some business figures and prompted threats that some high earners would move out of France in protest.

“Total pays and will continue to pay its taxes in France,” the spokesman added.

THAT'S AMAZING NEWS! Will they look into space in existing/UC skyscrapers or maybe help have pre-let space on proposed or only just started UC Towers - i.e. Lime Street or maybe even The Pinnacle! :O
