Finance and Insurance Exports Produced by the SASI group (Sheffield) and Mark Newman (Michigan)

Of all the net finance and insurance


services exports in the world, 99% of
the profit flows to territories in
Western Europe. Despite this, almost
half of the 24 territories in Western
Europe have no net finance and
insurance services exports. The main
exporting territories for these services
are the United Kingdom, Switzerland,
Germany and Luxembourg. The
Malvinas (or Falkland Islands) are large
on this map because they are resized
according to the United Kingdom
data.

Territory size shows the proportion of worldwide net exports


of finance and insurance services (in US$) that come from
there. Net exports are exports minus imports. When imports
are larger than exports the territory is not shown.
