Foreign banks and financial institutions have affirmed their commitment to London as a foreign exchange trading centre in the aftermath of the Docklands bombing on February 9. "It won't have any effect on us," says Peter Bürger of Commerzbank and chairman of the Foreign Banks and Securities' Houses Association. Ian Hosier, deputy general manager of Sanwa Bank, which was forced to move out of the Commercial Union building when it was damaged in an earlier bomb blast says: "We're still here."
