The GFCI evaluates the competitiveness of financial centres worldwide by bringing together the results of online surveys completed by financial services leaders and separate indices of competitiveness. The third edition of the GFCI, produced by Z/Yen Group Limited, includes a special feature on the role of skills in a financial centre's competitiveness.
The City of London’s Global Financial Centres Index (GFCI) was first published in March 2007. It rated and ranked each major financial centre in the world in terms of competitiveness. The original research was then updated and expanded and the results were presented in GFCI 2, published in September 2007. The growth and additional data in successive editions also enabled the Index to highlight the changing priorities and concerns of finance professionals.
The present report, GFCI 3 (the third in the series), updates some of the external indices used in the GFCI model and adds eight new indices of features contributing to competitiveness. Since GFCI 2, 411 additional respondents have filled in the online questionnaire, thereby providing 7,193 new assessments from financial services professionals across the world. The GFCI 3 model provides ratings for centres using a total of 62 external indices (called “instrumental factors”) and a total of 18,878 assessments from 1,236 respondents (see Appendix A for more information on the GFCI Methodology.)
GFCI 3 contains a special chapter (Chapter 5) focusing on skills in the financial sector, a critical component of competitiveness. This chapter draws on GFCI and selected external data and analysis. The focus on skills reflects a widely-held view summed up by one respondent:
The availability of skilled, high quality people, and the support received from government to recruit or bring them into the jurisdiction is the single greatest multiplier in all other aspects of successful business…
The top eight centres in GFCI 3 have maintained the same rankings as in GFCI 2. GFCI 3 shows again that London and New York are the two leading global financial centres, some 90 points ahead of the next two centres. Singapore (ranked number 4) is gaining slightly on Hong Kong (ranked number 3), with the gap between those two centres narrowing in GFCI 3 to just 20 points.
