Financial capitals compared

We take the 10 leading financial cities according to the latest Global Financial Index (GFCI) and compare them in 10 key categories to find our global champion

*Stocks traded are shown as a percentage of GDP of country/territory the city is in. How it works: the overall unlock score is the sum of a city’s rankings in every category, so a first place finish = 1 point, a second place finish = 2 points and so on. If two or more cities have the same ranking in a category then the points are split evenly. The lower the points the higher the ranking.
