New York City has retaken the top spot among the world’s financial centers, according to a new survey from Duff & Phelps.
In its Global Regulatory Outlook report, the financial-services consultancy released the results of a survey of 183 respondents from a variety of countries. Over half the respondents worked in banking or asset management.
This year’s results showed a marked departure from last year’s, with more than half the respondents listing New York City as the leading financial capital. Driven by fears of Brexit, only 36% of respondents cited London as the leading finance center, a sharp drop from 53% last year.
