British finance minister George Osborne will meet some of Wall Street's biggest investors in New York on Monday to urge them to stick with Britain despite last month's vote to leave the European Union, his office said.
The vote for Brexit has pushed the pound to 31-year lows against the dollar and left many investors warning that Britain, until this month the world's fifth largest economy, faces years of uncertainty over everything from trade relations to investment.
"While Britain's decision to leave the EU clearly presents economic challenges, we now have to do everything we can to make the UK the most attractive place in the world to do business," Osborne, who backed staying in the EU, said in a statement.
"Pursuing a stronger relationship with our biggest trading partners is now a top priority ... my message to the world is that Britain may be leaving the EU but we are not quitting the world. We will continue to be a beacon for free trade, democracy and security, more open to that world than ever."
