IBF welcomes Dublin’s ranking as a top 10 financial centre
IBF welcomes Dublin’s top 10 ranking in the Global Financial Centres Index, a step-up of three places from the previous Index.
This result is very positive for the standing of our International Financial Services Centre (IFSC) and Ireland’s reputation as a location for international financial services – coming as it does from key executive decision-makers who operate in international markets and who are well informed. Given the recent turbulence in international markets and the negative commentary about the IFSC emanating from some quarters, Dublin’s ranking in tenth position out of 62 global financial centres represents a welcome vote of confidence from the international community. It is especially heartening that of the centres most rated by respondents not based there, Dublin’s ranking rises to fourth.
Going forward, the focus must be on shaping the most appropriate policy and regulatory environment” to deliver continued success.
