London will continue being a hub for financial technology companies despite leaving the European Union, says Early Metrics, a rating agency for startups and innovative SMEs. The company conducted a study of 1,500 fintech firms across Europe and found that though London’s leadership in the fintech domain had been challenged by Brexit, it would continue attracting interest and investments in the medium term.

Since Brexit, a fall in the pound and the slowdown in home price growth, Gulf investors have poured hundreds of millions of dollars into London property. Investors are of the opinion that Brexit is a short-term issue that will be resolved quickly. The city’s most desirable neighborhoods are expected to be the beneficiaries, and predicted to witness up to a 22 per cent increase in prices once the Brexit cloud disappears.
