Financial Center Database

Enabling the WAIFC and its members to follow the developments in the financial industry

The Financial Center Database consolidates a broad set of indicators covering all aspects of international financial center development, such as the financial sector, business environment and reputation, city infrastructure, human capital, and quality of life.

The database is for internal use for the time being. However, it is planned to make parts of it publicly accessible at a later date.

The Financial Center Database contains data from public sources such as the World Bank, the IMF, the OECD, or the BIS, data from WAIFC partners as well as self-collected data from our members.

We use Tableau as the front-end of our database and for visualization purposes.

Our WAIFC Financial Center Database Expert Group, consisting of representatives of our members, steers the further development of the database and decides every quarter on the inclusion of new indicators.

The Financial Center Database enables the WAIFC and its members to follow the most important developments in the financial industry at a global level. It also serves as a data source for WAIFC publications and social media.
