A spokesperson for Close Brothers said: "We are looking forward to our move to Wimbledon. It will provide our employees with a great environment to work in and we look forward to becoming active members of the local community".

Helen Clark Bell, Love Wimbledon BID manager, said: "We are delighted that Close Brothers are moving into the town this summer. Love Wimbledon is actively working with senior managers now to help with their transition and to offer a warm welcome to all Close Brothers staff."
