Edinburgh city businesses, and business directory

Edinburgh has the strongest economy of any city in the UK outside London. Edinburgh is also the second largest financial centre in the UK after the City of London and the fourth in Europe by equity assets, and is at the centre of the financial services industry in Scotland. More FTSE100 companies are based in Edinburgh than anywhere in the UK outside London. The city has critical mass in banking, fund management, life and general insurance, securities, corporate finance, broking, asset servicing and support services

To the west of the castle, and close to the hotel is the main financial district of Edinburgh (also known as The Exchange), where major banks and insurance companies fuel the hub of Edinburgh's economy. The Exchange features a cluster of financial services headquarters including Standard Life and Scottish Widows. The whole area has over 90,000 square metres of office space and capacity for up to 16,000 jobs. The area also houses the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC)
