Around 4,000 staff from Canary Wharf to the 15-storey building in the International Quarter, near the Olympic Park.

The finance watchdog invited more than 100 Year 7 pupils from Sarah Bonnell all-girls school in Stratford and Rokeby, an all-boys school in Canning Town, for the opening ceremony today (Tuesday), at which the FCA also launched its Inspiring Futures careers guidance programme for youngsters in the borough.

One pupil from Sarah Bonnell and another from Rokeby, schools that are both taking part in the scheme for three years, unveiled a plaque bearing their school’s names and the date.

The move “marks the start of a new chapter” for the regulator, said FCA chair Charles Randell.

“It is great that students from the two schools were asked to join us to mark the formal opening of our new building,” he added.
