Financial and professional services

Just 20 minutes from Leeds, the UK’s largest financial centre outside London, York has a growing financial and professional services sector, and is home to major international firms such as Aviva and Hiscox.

An emerging insurance hub, with 4.5% of its GVA attributable to the sector (4 times the national average), York provides the ideal alternative location for national and regional offices.

Relocating or consolidating back and middle-office operations here delivers significant cost benefits and operational efficiencies when compared to many of our competitors.
