J.P Morgan have alot of their back office operations in Bourenmouth, 4,000 employees +.

Some of the best beaches in the country, insane nightlife, new forest and very relaxed compared to somewhere like Lodon.

But if your interested in FO, nowhere else to be im afraid, London it is.

I am allergic to pollen specific to London. Do you think H+R will mind if I wear my bubble suit to interviews.

Hargreaves Lansdown is a FTSE100 Stockbroker, based in Bristol. FO/MO is possible outside London. Also BarCap have a big IB risk office in Manchester. I'm sure there are others.

Oh **** Hargreaves Lansdown really? Where can I apply?
Yep, it shows that if the best I could come up with off the top of my head were HL and one BarCap Office, then clearly London is where you will find 99% of the UK IB workforce.

btw loafer if you are interested: http://www.h-l.co.uk/about-us/careers
I'm sure they would be glad to have you.

No, JPM is in Bournemouth.

MS BO in Glasgow (although I'm not sure why you'd rather Glasgow than London but oh well).

BNP Paribas have a presence in Glasgow, but you'd probably rather live and work in Kabul instead of the crack capital of Glasgow.

Do you get the same salary outwith London? Therefore, proportionately making more?

Only reason I can see for going elsewhere.
