It’s a fair, pragmatic point. London accounted for only 5% of IPOs, or flotations, globally between 2015 and 2020, which is a feeble performance if the post-Brexit ambition for the stock market is to rival New York, and not just deflect Amsterdam’s challenge. A few of London’s supposedly sacred governance principles were always likely to be sacrificed.
