Bloomberg says London will remain a global financial capital | ブルームバーグ氏の語る、世界におけるロンドンの立ち位置

Businessman and former New York mayor, Michael Bloomberg, told BBC that despite Brexit, London will remain a global financial capital.

Even though he recently said Brexit was the "single dumbest thing" and that would probably slow London's growth, but he does not believe Brexit will dethrone London as the global financial capital.

Mr Bloomberg just opened a new European headquarters in London on a 3.2 acre site. The site has more than 1 million square feet of office space and is located between the Bank of England and St Paul's Cathedral.

When asked on BBC Radio 4 if Brexit would've have affected his development decision in London, Mr Bloomberg said: "There's just no question in my mind... [we] absolutely would have because due is the financial center of Europe for the foreseeable future."

"It is the things the finance industry needs. It is family friendly, it has a lot of culture so that you can attractive these people, because you, remember, if your family will not live here, you can ' t take a job here, so here got to be attractive," he said.

Mr Bloomberg added: "New York is the financial center of the United States. London is the financial center of Europe. It's going to stay that way for a long time."
