Where Industry Leadership Meets Industry Disruption

JobsOhio Video

Success in an evolving financial services landscape requires surrounding yourself with industry knowledge, innovation and talent.

Ohio is the 6th largest financial services industry in the U.S. The state is No. 3 in top 50 bank headquarters and No. 4 in top 50 insurance headquarters by assets. In addition to Ohio’s financial services advantages, you can access nearly 75% of the U.S. and Canadian financial services industry within a two-hour flight.

 

In Ohio, you can:

  • Collaborate with world-leading financial and insurance leaders including Progressive Insurance, KeyBank, Huntington and Fifth Third Bank, and industry-disrupting scale-ups and fintech startups such as Klarna, Root Insurance and Alliance Data.
  • Get the same results as investments in costal financial services cities, but with lower rents, cheaper office space and operations, as well as affordable talent. In Ohio, every dollar goes further, resulting in more capital to invest in Research & Development (R&D) and company expansion.
  • Hire sophisticated tech talent to power your innovations in rising tech cities such as Cincinnati, Columbus and Cleveland, which are consistently ranked among the top cities for young professionals and tech talent.
  • Benefit from a supportive business and regulatory climate. In August 2018, Ohio demonstrated its commitment to a fintech future by passing legislation that protects firms developing innovative uses for blockchain technology.
