The expanding hub for professional services, banking and fintech

Glasgow - offering superior opportunities for financial growth

A location of choice for world-leading financial and professional services firms, Glasgow offers a deep and broad talent pool and a substantial supply of graduates from its three universities. Glasgow produces the highest number of finance and business studies candidates of any of the UK’s core cities.  

59,000 Financial and professional services jobs
It is a growing centre for banking and fund management – with Santander, Morgan Stanley and BNP Paribas all choosing to locate in the city. Barclays is developing a new world-class campus in Glasgow, which is set to accommodate over 2,500 new jobs and will make Barclays one of Glasgow’s biggest commercial employers. 

£91m Foreign direct investment in financial services between 2014 and 2018
With a reputation as a fintech powerhouse – it is home to technology centres for JP Morgan and Morgan Stanley - and an established professional services hub, KPMG have recently expanded operations in Glasgow having selected the city as its second UK centre for managed services and creating 400 jobs.
