New York

One of the biggest FinTech hubs in the world, where else would you want to be than New York City? New York has overtaken Silicon Valley and now has the largest share (47%) of FinTech investment deals, home to experts in lending, marketplace, investment management and trading.

Here you’ll find New York FinTech companies developing solutions to crypto currency, cloud computing and automated advisory services, as well established giants including LinkedIn, Uber, Bloomberg and Google. The fast paced environment of New York means that start-ups and smaller companies can thrive and take on the much larger FinTech giants that line Wall Street.

More than $690 million of funding was given to New York’s FinTech companies in the first quarter of 2016 alone. New York is the destination of choice for the best in FinTech because of the innovation and the wide range of talent drawn to the buzz of the Big Apple.

The port past

The Port of New York and New Jersey is the third largest port in USA and the busiest on the East Coast
In 2010, 4,811 ships entered New York harbour. Their cargo was valued at over $157 billion and weighed 32.2 million metric tonnes
European colonisation of the US began in the 1600s and following this strides were made to include the port in the triangle of trade between Europe, Africa and North America

The tech future

NYC is a huge hub for FinTech – it’s home to Google, Facebook, MongoDB, Spotify, Symphony, Vice Media, The New York Times, Handy, Tumblr, Timehop, Buzzfeed, Etsy, ZocDoc and more
48,000 people are employed in the FinTech sector in NYC
Companies to watch in 2016 and beyond include Apester, DigitalOcean, MediaMath and StartApp
Banks are starting to invest in FinTech start ups in New York – Barclays and Goldman Sachs are leading a Wall Street trend

New York has created more tech jobs than Silicon Valley over the past five years and the calibre of tech and finance brands we have here is only comparable to San Francisco. It goes without saying that NYC is an attractive prospect for Gen X and Millennials – it’s a golden time to be here.”
