WASHINGTON, July 21 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister David Cameron will meet leaders of New York’s financial sector on Wednesday to discuss regulation and encourage further investment in Britain.
Cameron, on his first trip to the United States since coming to power in May, will meet JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs, Citigroup chief Vikram Pandit, Kenneth Griffin from Citadel, Morgan Stanley CEO James Gorman, BlackRock boss Larry Fink and Bob Kelly from Bank of New York Mellon.
“There’ll be a discussion of regulatory proposals. He will set out our plans for financial regulation,” Cameron’s spokesman told reporters.
“We’re very keen to work globally and ensure there is a sensible coordination of financial regulatory proposals.”
Bonuses and bank levies, both proposed and under consideration, were due to be discussed.
The spokesman said the prime minister was also eager to encourage banks with large amounts of cash and “substantial investments” in Britain to continue that flow of capital.
Cameron, who met U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday in Washington and is due to meet United Nations chief Ban Ki-Moon on Wednesday, will also see Pfizer CEO Jeff Kindler.
