The Dallas-Fort Worth area has been identified as one of several “new cities of finance” in a report issued by CBRE. The report demonstrated that DFW experienced the greatest financial services employment growth of all active markets, adding 284,600 jobs since 2010. The growth is due to available talent, as well as the low cost of doing business in the area.
Other cities considered financially savvy include Columbus, OH; Nashville, TN; Phoenix, AZ; Jacksonville and Tampa, FL; Salt Lake City, UT; Richmond, VA, and Charlotte NC. San Antonio also made the cut.
The analysis was conducted using skilled-labor availability, real-estate costs, market educational levels and ideal recruitment and employment centers for the types of workers desired by the financial industry.
