The I-64 corridor running through the heart of Greater St. Louis is emerging as one of the nation’s most concentrated locations for Financial and Information Service companies, and home to a large portion of the 80,000+ jobs this sector provides for the metro.  Here you will find the headquarters for leading investment firms Edward Jones, Scottrade, Stifel and Wells Fargo Advisors.  Their neighbors on this corridor include the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis and headquarters operations for CitiMortgage, Reinsurance Group of America, Century Link Technology Solutions (formerly Savvis) and Thomson Reuters; along with the global technology operations for MasterCard.

During the recession stressed years of 2007 – 2012, the St. Louis region added more than 4,500 jobs in the securities, commodities and investments sector of the financial services industry while the five largest U.S. financial service markets shed 39,000 jobs in this sector.

The St. Louis Financial Forum, a CEO-led industry roundtable is working to increase and leverage Greater St. Louis’ recognition as one of the nation’s leading off-Wall Street financial service centers.
