Paris may see an additional 10,000 direct jobs move to the city as it reaps the benefits of Brexit, according to the chairman of the French capital’s financial sector lobby.

Paris Europlace says 3,500 positions are already moving from London to Paris as the U.K. leaves the European Union. Up to 30,000 indirect roles may be added to that, Gerard Mestrallet, chairman of Paris Europlace, told Bloomberg TV in an interview on Wednesday.
