Glasgow – Building Business

Glasgow’s growth in the 21st century has been propelled by its development into a global financial and business services hub thanks largely to the creation of an International Financial Services District (IFSD). Established in 2001, this public-private partnership has created a hub for financial services excellence centred on the development of high quality office space, state-of-the-art technology and a world-class skills base. The IFSD has engendered more than £1 billion investment to Glasgow and created more than 15,000 jobs.

Growth is set to continue, bolstered by a robust local economy and a depth of financial and business services talent. It is telling that Glasgow is being recognised for its future orientation, not just in business and financial services, but across the board. Glasgow has taken an integrated approach with its growth strategy that has positioned the city well for inward and foreign investment.

Competitive advantage: Business Glasgow

  • Glasgow is a base for major global corporations in the financial and services sector, such as JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley, Barclays Wealth, BNP Paribas, Aon and others.
  • Glasgow’s 53,500 strong workforce in the financial and supplementary and auxiliary services sector forms the basis for an active, growing business environment.
