We are pleased to present another report in the Financial Centre Futures series. This report concentrates on financial centres that have been identified as the most likely to become more significant in the next few years.
Z/Yen Partners has been studying the competitiveness of financial centres for over fifteen years and has worked directly with over thirty financial centres. The most visible aspects of our work in this area is the Global Financial Centres Index (GFCI). The latest edition, GFCI 24 was compiled using over 130 sets of data provided by third parties including the World Bank, The Economist Intelligence Unit, the OECD, and the United Nations. These factors are combined with over 30,000 financial centre assessments provided by respondents to the GFCI online questionnaire.
As well as producing the index itself, the questionnaire gives us valuable insights into what financial services professionals are thinking about the future.
The author of this report, Mark Yeandle would like to thank the Financial Centre Futures team for their help and contributions to this report.
