Edinburgh and Financial Services

Edinburgh is the natural choice for financial services events. Second only to London as the UK's largest financial centre, it’s also a major European centre for asset management and servicing.

The city’s financial services sector employs around 53,000 people in banking, insurance and pensions, asset management and FinTech . It’s the chosen headquarters for major financial institutions like the Royal Bank of Scotland Group, Standard Life and Scottish Widows, and for multinationals including JP Morgan Chase, BlackRock, HSBC, and The Bank of New York Mellon.

The city’s three main financial services locations are in the Exchange District, the city centre and West Edinburgh, all of them within easy reach of a huge range of conference venues and accommodation. So there’s really no better location for your financial services event.
