Abstract

The agglomeration of skilled international migrants in global cities' financial communities has parallelled the globalisation of financial capital, international markets and deregulation, International workers have clustered in global cities as a response to their gee-economic functions, and in particular those labour market demands created within transnational corporate headquarters, Within this context, this paper will provide a discussion of the significance of skilled international labour migration within a global city: the City of London's transnational investment banking community.
