The head of one of the world’s leading investment banks has said Britain should remain in the EU, describing London as “a great financial capital of the world”.

Goldman Sachs’ president and chief operating officer Gary Cohn said it is the best thing “for all of us” that the financial services industry stays in London.

Mr Cohn told the BBC: “I think for the UK it’s imperative to keep the financial services industry in London.

“We all want to stay in London – it is our European headquarters.

“I think that having a great financial capital of the world staying in the UK and having the UK be part of Europe is the best thing for all of us.”

Prime Minister David Cameron has pledged to hold an in-out referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU if the Conservatives regain power in the general election in May.
