Sheikh Mohamed Bin Issa Al Jaber pledges to maintain his business interests in Britain despite referendum result

Speaking to Hugo Greenhalgh at the Financial Times following the UK vote to leave the European Union, Sheikh Mohamed Bin Issa Al Jaber pledged to maintain his business interests in Britain despite fears that the referendum result will dent London’s position as the world’s centre for international wealth.

Sheikh Mohamed told the FT that the UK capital was a model of “transparency and accountability” and remained his first choice.

“The future will show that Britain is a market which is difficult to replace,” he said. Compared with other European — or global — capitals, the advantage remained in London’s favour, he said. “I know there will be changes and people will need to accommodate them, but Britain, and London in particular, remains the capital market of the world, and that will not be changed.”
