Deloitte's Cardiff base 'could be twice as big' in future

Cardiff is well placed to create more jobs in financial services, says the UK head of finance giant Deloitte.

The group's finance and administration centre of excellence officially opened in the city's enterprise zone, with half the promised 700 staff in place.

David Sproul said the lower cost of office space gave Cardiff an edge over Birmingham and Manchester.

It comes as ministers said they had supported 10,000 new finance and professional jobs in Wales since 2011.

First Minister Carwyn Jones officially opened the offices, which have £3.5m worth of Welsh government support.

Mr Sproul said there was no reason why Deloitte's office in Cardiff could not double in size in the future.
