The prosperity of the international financial services industry in the 1980s and 1990s stimulated other financial centres to try to boost, or just retain, their share of activity. Challenges were mounted by Frankfurt and Paris, taking advantage of the opportunity offered by the UK's non-participation in the launch of the European single currency. There were also internal challenges that threatened to erode the City's competitive standing, notably congested local transport, creeping taxation, and increasingly bureaucratic regulation. This chapter considers the seriousness of these challenges and the City's outlook for the 21st century.
