Hamilton Economic Development

Finance, Insurance & Real Estate (FIRE)

Hamilton is a prime investment location for businesses in the Finance, Insurance and Real-Estate (FIRE) sector, offering a wide variety of choice in location and types of office space. The city is currently home to more than a dozen co-location office spaces- driven by a large millennial population (at 28% of the population, millennials now outnumber baby-boomers in Hamilton). This gives firms the opportunity to develop talent right from post-secondary education to leadership roles within a firm.

Fast-changing developments in the blockchain industry and cryptocurrency economy also provide opportunities to grow the emerging FINTECH sector to new heights in Hamilton.  Surrounded by 23 nearby universities and colleges and a population of 2.3 million people in the region, Hamilton is at the centre of one of the most highly educated, skilled and reliable workforces in the world.  And with close proximity to the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and the US border/market border major international markets are only a short drive away.

Hamilton also sits at the nexus of several data superhighways, allowing FINTECH companies to tap directly into the fiber backbone that connects Seattle, Chicago, London, Amsterdam, Toronto and every other major business centre across the globe.
