Capital One UK has continued its expansion in London’s Silicon Roundabout by relocating its West End offices to the White Collar Factory EC1. 

The new London office houses all of Capital One’s London-based employees in one space. 

The announcement follows the attendance of Capital One UK’s CEO, Amy Lenander, at the Investing in Success business roundtable event in New York hosted by Prime Minister Theresa May.  The event was attended by a select gathering of US companies who have made, or are looking to make, significant new investments in the UK. 

Amy Lenander said “Our move to White Collar Factory is a key part of our drive to put digital and tech capabilities at the core of our business strategy.  The new office puts us at the heart of London’s innovation and fintech hub, making it easier to recruit from one of the best talent pools in the world and to integrate into the London tech community.” 

The White Collar Factory development comprises a 237,000-square-foot, 16-storey tower with 56,000-square-foot of additional office campus, restaurants and residential areas. The space is a superb open-plan working environment with an exceptional, tailor-made interior fit with flexible work spaces, meeting areas and a bespoke customer research lab. Rooms are equipped with the latest technology and connectivity, including Microsoft Surface Hubs.
