Glasgow in global top 40

26 Sep 2012

Glasgow's financial district, IFSD, now ranks in the top 40 financial districts in the world.

 

Glasgow has achieved another excellent performance in the latest global ranking of major financial centres.
The city has moved up two places in the latest Global Financial Centres Index which measures 75 financial centres across the world.
Glasgow is now in the world's Top 40 financial centres, progressing upwards from its previous ranking of 41st to 39th, ahead of Brussels, Madrid, Helsinki, Dublin and Milan.
Despite the challenges of the current economic climate, Glasgow's International Financial Services District has consolidated its position after an economic study late last year confirmed the city's financial sector had weathered the economic storms better than many of its rivals.
A spokesperson for Glasgow's IFSD said: "This very encouraging ranking for Glasgow underline the success of our International Financial Services District in the past decade.  We have a highly-skilled and highly-educated workforce, which, combined with an environment supportive of business, is very attractive to investors.  We look forward to continuing to develop Glasgow as a leading European location for the financial services sector. "
The Index confirmed the dominant position of London, New York and Hong Kong as the world's top financial centres.
