Strictly Finance – NEW TOUR
Business Studies for Finance and the Economy
“The economy is a very sensitive organism”
All Business and Economics students will benefit from this visit to the vibrant City of London, a leading international centre for finance since the 19th century. Initially it was a magnet for lending and investment. Today it is now a world leader in business and financial services and maintains the largest trade surplus in financial services around the world. London is popular for financial institutions as it benefits from its position between Asia and the USA time zones. It is also well located within Europe and both the Bank of England and the European Banking Authority are based in London.Read more
