The Global Financial Centres Index (GFCI) was first produced by the Z/Yen Group in March 2007 following another research project into city competitiveness undertook in 2005. The aim of the GFCI is to examine the major financial centres globally in terms of competitiveness. The GFCI has been published every six months (although the index is actually produced every three months). Find out more about previous editions of the GFCI in the Financial Centre Futures Publications section.
The GFCI is regularly mentioned in the media globally. For more information, see our media coverage section.
