The UK’s unique capabilities as an international financial centre mean it is perfectly positioned to help multinationals mitigate a diverse range of financial risks.

With an extensive network of 250 international banks and channelling 43% of global forex trading, the UK can support multinationals in managing currency and liquidity risks on a global scale.

Multinationals can also hedge their interest rate risks through the UK, a leading derivatives market with 50% share of the trading of global over-the counter interest rate derivatives.

Furthermore, global firms can manage business and specialist risks through the UK’s mature insurance market, control operational risks and ensure regulatory compliance with support from leading legal, accountancy and consulting service firms gathered in the UK.
