The Last Word: JPMorgan’s Elaine Agather on DFW’s Growing Global Financial Impact

“There are now CEOs within our business or different business units who sit in Dallas or Plano or Fort Worth running businesses with employees all around the world.”

Elaine Agather
Chairman of the Dallas Region
.…from a recent Yahoo! Finance story on three of Wall Street’s largest banks starting new campuses in the Dallas area in 2023.

In a recent end-of-2023 article titled Wall Street’s Seismic Shift Propels Dallas Past Chicago, LA, Yahoo! Finance noted that “Dallas saw three of Wall Street’s largest banks start on new campuses this year, cementing their bets on one of the fastest-growing metros in one of the fastest-growing states.”

That included the October groundbreaking for Goldman Sachs’ 5,000-person campus in downtown Dallas’ Victory Park; Wells Fargo’s April groundbreaking for its new 22-acre campus in Irving; and the 30-story Parkside Uptown breaking ground in November, overlooking Dallas’ Klyde Warren Park as the future home of Bank of America’s Dallas office.

Yahoo! Finance noted that Dallas-Fort Worth “surpassed Chicago and Los Angeles during the pandemic” to become the No. 2 metro in the U.S. for finance jobs.
