      My understanding is that Paris & Frankfurt have been competing with London for decades yet they are still way behind on Global trade, they may take some of the EU business but its not sure.

          Yes, they are behind, so they've got room to grow, ambition and political will of the EU to make it happen.

          London will probably go back to where it was in the 70s, with some luck it won't be 1670.

              Forget the EU the attack will come from the East. Even the most rabid left wing paper thinks so.

              Will London survive as a financial centre after Brexit? | Business | The Guardian

              On these measures, London and New York continue to do well. The latest Global Financial Centres Index, published last month by Z/Yen, shows that London remains at the top of the league, marginally ahead of New York.But the ratings of both have declined sharply over the last year, and the gap between them and third-place Singapore, more than 30 points last year, is only 20 this year. Indeed, almost all of the Asian centres have lifted their ratings, with Beijing rising the fastest, moving from 26th to 16th place.
              If we look specifically at Europe, the only other financial centre in the global top 20 is Luxembourg, which creeps in at 18, six places lower than last year. Frankfurt, at 23, fell four places this year, and Paris has been stuck at 29 for the last couple of surveys. So London has a huge lead in Europe.

              so neither Paris nor Frankfurt have managed to gain any ground (in fact Germany lost some) despite 2 years of very public uncertainty.

              so apparently New York is seeing the Brexit effect.

              Not for the first time, New York took first place in the index, just two points head of London, although both centres fell slightly in the ratings. Hong Kong is now only three points (on a scale of 1,000) behind London. Shanghai overtook Tokyo to move into fifth place, gaining 25 points in the ratings. Beijing, Zurich, and Frankfurt moved into the top ten centres, replacing Toronto, Boston, and San Francisco.

                  You should consider Lisbon, it has a good startup scene (hence the requisite talent), excellent tax concessions for business, nice weather (hurricane yesterday notwthstanding) and people, low cost of living.
                  Just got the keys to our flat there, close to the Foreign Ministry and with a view to the Tagus. Currently arranging utilities etc which is difficult at a distance.
                  If you want to borrow it to assess the situation (it will probably be ready from next year) let me know. Seriously.
                  Hard Brexit now!

                    After all to a meeelionaire like yourself it wouldn't matter if the gormless tit crashed it, would it?

                    On a serious note, couldn't you have PM'd the offer to him?
