History Miami has the nation’s second-highest concentration of domestic and international banks and other financial institutions. Other than New York City, more banking institutions, domestic and international thrifts, foreign bank agencies and other financial services companies call Miami their home than any other city in North America. In recent years, the proliferation of venture capital and private equity funds, portfolio and wealth management companies along with hedge funds, investment and brokerage firms have provided Miami with a truly vibrant and active financial landscape.
