London operates as the business and finance hub of Europe with over 16,000 national and international companies based in the City, including companies from more than 60 different countries. Many of these are among the world's leading corporations and financial institutions. The London Stock Exchange's Main Market is recognised as the most prominent international exchange in the world, while the Alternative Investment Market has experienced phenomenal growth in the past few years. London's international outlook and diversity makes it the ideal backdrop for business.
