London is a world-class city full of history and culture. It instils a strong sense of community – something which the company fosters within all of its properties. London’s position, language, culture, skilled workforce, legal system, quality of life, healthcare and education make it a unique place to live and work. It’s a cosmopolitan city that has everything in one place – financial and insurance services, advisory services, tech and creative industries, government, research centres and top educational institutes are all based here.
