Publisher Review

"Demystifies the financial services industry in an easy to understand and engaging way." -Association of Investment Trust Companies "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 "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
