Last week I spent talking with a number of the City of London’s brightest minds from Chief Economists and successful fund managers to retired policymakers.
London is a really wonderful place when the sun is out (perhaps that’s the same for everywhere!). I managed to find a nice boutique hotel in Kensington, literally two blocks from where I lived for part of my student life. I took out part-time jobs so I could afford to stay in this exclusive part of town. The white Georgian buildings are always spectacular in the bright sunlight. And I love the way that this part of town has wonderful English institutions such as the Albert Hall, the Natural History Museum and Imperial College, but also one can duck into little authentic Italian cafes or Lebanese restaurants. For me, I love many cities across the world, but London is the world’s most global city.
