Best Cities for Finance Jobs in the United States
Anil Jethmal is a graduate of Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, where he earned a BA in economics. Today, Anil Jethmal is an investment executive in New York and was featured in the book, The Winner’s Circle 2: How 10 Stockbrokers Became the Best in the Business.
A stockbroker is a finance professional who assists clients in the purchase and sale of stocks. Though New York City is the place in the United States that most people associate with stockbrokers and other financial professionals, several other cities around the country are also known for their thriving finance sectors.
A few hours north of New York City, Boston, Massachusetts, is an excellent place for finance jobs and those looking to work in asset management. Boston's cost of living is significantly lower than that of New York City, which can save new graduates money while they gain footing in the industry.
Chicago, Illinois, is another excellent choice for those who want to work in finance. Many of the largest US banks have roots in Chicago, and recent developments suggest that Bank of America will soon be calling Chicago home.
