Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group commits to London

Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group Inc.’s European banking unit agreed to lease a new European headquarters from British Land Co. and GIC Pte at London’s Broadgate complex.

Japan’s second-largest bank by market value will rent 161,000 square feet (15,000 square meters) at 100 Liverpool Street, British Land said in a statement Tuesday. The company will occupy the first three floors of the building on a 20-year lease.

SMBC is the latest bank to confound expectations that Britain’s decision to leave the European Union would dramatically damp demand for London offices. Wells Fargo & Co. and Deutsche Bank are among those that have secured new premises in the City of London financial district since the Brexit vote.
