UK Finance responds to the Chancellor’s Mansion House speech

Responding to Chancellor Nadhim Zahawi's speech at Mansion House, David Postings, Chief Executive of UK Finance, said:

The Chancellor’s vision in his Mansion House speech is for the UK to have a strong and internationally competitive banking and finance sector, which we strongly welcome.

A successful financial services sector is critical for achieving economic growth and benefits the whole country – it is one of our most important industries, delivering jobs, investment and growth across every region.

To ensure the sector continues to be successful, alongside maintaining the pace of reform, there needs to be a keen focus on international competitiveness from the next government.
