The U.K.'s financial sector could lose 43,000 jobs in half a year, the Confederation of British Industry and PWC forecast, with 25,000 positions slashed in Q4 and another 18,000 set to go in Q1. That would bring to 132,000 the number of jobs lost since the peak of the financial crisis in 2008, when the sector employed 1M people.
