Delegates are warning of economic instability following Britain’s European Union (EU) divorce and offering Paris as a more stable alternative.
Officials are currently in London where they are meeting with some of the finance industry’s heavy hitters.
Paris joins other EU cities, including Dublin and Frankfurt, who hope to benefit lucratively from Brexit.
Othman Nasrou, vice president of the Ile de France region, said he was meeting with “a few financial institutions” today and tomorrow.

A spokesman for his office said he would “present all the opportunities and assets, the offerings and the reasons to choose Paris Region” as a new EU home base after Brexit.
Paris is so confident on securing business from UK-based firms it is fast-tracking plans to build seven new skyscrapers in the city, with the business district already capable of taking in 20,000 new workers.
Defacto, the local authority responsible for managing France’s business district, said: “A lot of new companies are arriving in the business district from France and from abroad and what we believe is that Brexit will accelerate that good tendency.”
It is the latest sign that Paris is ramping up its charm offensive on City firms in hopes of attracting businesses worried about losing access to the single market in financial services after Britain leaves the European Union.
Mr Nasrou’s meetings come only six weeks after Ile de France president Valerie Pecresse last visited London with similar intentions.
He was among a group of Parisian politicians and business groups that hosted more than 60 representatives from UK-based banks, fund managers and insurance firms in the Shard in hopes of drawing more financial firms to London.
Dublin and Frankfurt are also scrapping it out to benefit from any Brexit wobble in London, with the German city expected to come out on top.
