Paris vs London

I've interned in both cities, though my university is in France. I have to make a choice whether to start in Paris or London.

While London has been a dream since I knew what finance was, Paris is becoming more and more popular for everything finance. Banks are growing extremely rapidly in Paris. Not to project the current data trend into the future, but I'm genuinely worried what the future holds for London. I'm fluent in both English and French, with some German in there.

What do you think?

Studied abroad in France at Sciences Po. I really liked the students - they were surprisingly super friendly and willing to help me, which I very much appreciated. I have to say though, a few members of the older generation were quite rude to my face. That's just how they are - very blunt and straightforward. Takes some getting used to but eventually I just got over it.
