Midlands “destination of choice” for FS

22 June 2017

Carl Sizer, financial services leader for PwC in the Midlands, names the Midlands a “destination of choice” for financial services firms.

The Midlands is home to the UK’s largest regional financial, professional and business services hub, employing 940,000 people and contributing £31bn to the regional economy, according to the Midlands Engine.

As more financial services firms consider relocating operations outside of London to enhance their practices in a cost-effective way; the Midlands is fast becoming the destination of choice.

An internationally-renowned talent pool, significant investment strengthening the region’s infrastructure and a global profile as the thriving heartland of industry, are among some of the key attractions.
