The Midlands Engine: Midlands Financial Centre of Excellence
Sajid Javid launched the Midlands Financial Centre of Excellence Prospectus at the offices of Deutsche Bank in Birmingham last week.
He noted that the Midlands is one of the fastest growing and economically important areas within the UK and employs 940,000 people in the finance, professional and business services sector.
The Midlands Financial Services Centre of Excellence initiative brings together local government, firms and educational institutions to create a task-force that aims to develop action plans for their local ‘centre of excellence’.
The Prospectus includes background to the region and details on what makes it an attractive place for Foreign Direct investment.
