A recent report from CNN has put Casablanca’s Finance City Authority (CFCA) among “the 9 Best Hubs of the Future.”
The list included also Buenos Aires, Shanghai, Dubai, Qatar, Kuala Lumpur, Busan, Dalian, and Luxembourg.
The report said that “since its inception four years ago, the CFCA says it has attracted over 100 companies including BNP Paribas, AIG, Clifford Chance, Silk Invest and Boston Consulting Group to name a few.”
The report quoted Mark Yeandle, the associate director of Z/Yen Group, the company who published the GFCI, saying that “they’re putting a lot of work into it there.”
“They have a sensible budget and a good team,” he added.
“Casablanca is building its infrastructure and rebranding itself as a hub for financial services needed in Morocco, Tunis, and even further away in Lagos, Nigeria. “It [Casablanca’s Finance City Authority] will be as good as any,” said Yeandle.
