France wants to lure the British banker by building seven new skyscrapers occupying as much as 375,000 sq m of office space, about the size of 50 football pitches. So should the City of London bid adieu to bankers?

Anything beyond that is wishful thinking as French not only lack regulatory experience but the work culture is very different than the family friendly culture seen in the City.
