In view of the high level of political uncertainty surrounding the United
Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union, it will be some years until the
size of the Brexit pie, i.e. The relocation of companies and employees, can be
determined fully. Regardless of the final outcome of the negotiations between
the UK and the EU, the city of Frankfurt is likely to benefit.
Frankfurt is already continental Europe’s main financial hub, and compared to
other European cities, it can boast a range of additional advantages such as low
rents and residential property prices, good infrastructure and a highly dynamic
economy. However, considering the strengths of its European and also non-
European competitors, Frankfurt will end up with only a piece of the Brexit pie.
