GFCI - Global Financial Centres Index

The Global Financial Centres Index (GFCI) was first published by the Z/Yen Group in March 2007 following a research project into city competitiveness which we undertook in 2005 when we began compiling the index. The aim of the GFCI is to examine the major financial centres globally in terms of competitiveness. The GFCI has been published every six months (although the index is actually produced every three months).

We have been able to increase the number of respondents and additional data in successive editions of GFCI and this has enabled us to highlight the changing priorities and concerns of finance professionals across a period of great economic instability.

The GFCI provides profiles, ratings and rankings for 75 financial centres drawing on two separate sources of data – instrumental factors (external indices) and responses to an online survey.

We would be grateful for your opinions on any financial centres with which you are familiar. Please be assured that answers will be kept confidential. The questionnaire should take less than five minutes to complete. If you provide an email address, in return we will send you a copy of the next GFCI report.

GFCI is part of the Financial Centre Futures programme in Long Finance - visit the website for more information
