Reviews

"This book is the place to start for anyone who wants an all-in-one introduction to one of the world's greatest financial centres." - Business Voice, the magazine of the CBI
"Too often, the institutions and markets that make up the City of London are viewed in isolation rather than as connected parts of a bigger entity. In this accessible introduction, Alexander Davidson offers a practical insight into how it all fits together." - Bloomberg Money
