Brexit would threaten London financial dominance: UK minister Jo Johnson | Reuters

LONDON If Britain votes to leave the European Union, London's dominant position as the pre-eminent global financial center in its time zone would be placed under threat and other EU centers would seek to rip away business, British minister Jo Johnson said. London dominates the $5.3-trillion-a-day global foreign exchange market and is by far the most important financial center in the European Union, vying with New York for the title of the world's financial capital. Some financiers say a British exit would sap London's wealth, hammer sterling, undermine the world's fifth-largest economy and prompt some traders to move their business to other centers such as New York and Singapore #United States #India #London #science #Africa #european #article
