Searching Finance is delighted to announce that we are soon to publish Chris Skinner, Europe's no. 1 banking thought leader (and sometime court jester) on London's history as a financial centre.

London has always been at the heart of the world’s trading activities from Roman and Viking times to the present day.Through Empire and Industry, London has cemented its position as the leading centre for finance.And by political and economic manoeuvring, has maintained that position throughout the last century, as the Empire disappeared and open borders created free trade.

It will be interesting to see where London’s position move over the next decade as reforms kick in to restructure London, to make it a safer place to trade once more.

Look out for Chris's new book in February 2012.
