George Osborne has secured the support of the leaders of five investment banks as the government seeks to protect the City following last month's Brexit vote.
And now the bankers and Osborne have issued a joint statement pledging their commitment to boosting the City.
“Britain’s decision to leave the EU clearly presents economic challenges which we are determined to work together to meet,” the group said.
“Today we met and agreed that we would work together to build on all this with a common aim to help London retain its position as the leading international financial centre.”
It comes as the Conservatives continue the contest to choose a leader to replace Prime Minister David Cameron.
MPs are voting today to choose the final two candidates, with party members set to make a final decision before 9 September.
