But Edinburgh isnt in England ... Realistically the answer is no - at least working for a bank. You could look at financial software development companies - their main sites may be outside London.

Some of the universities do industry funded research, and they're outside the M25, but it's not well paid, and the main academics get what little glory comes out

Southampton has a number of insurance companies there ...I know skandia's headquarters is located there...and where there are insurance companies you can bet your bottom dollar that some quant divsion is located somewhere there....plus you could also consider jersey/gurnsey....Since it offshore I'm sure some hedge funds are located there

Alas, recent tax changes make it unlikely that the Channel Islands will grow much of a HF industry.However, if your definition of "Britain" is flexible then we have the Cayman Islands, who do has some interesting things.Of course I'm outside London, the border runs just past the bottom of my garden.I've been outside the M25, won't do that again in a hurry.
