Nobody's denying Miami is an international city...but you're crazy if you don't think Boston is too.

You're also putting way too much emphasis on the importance of a foreign bank. A lot of the clients of those Boston firms are international and many of those firms also have international offices.

Since you're so hung up on foreign banks, Natixis, which is a very large bank in Paris, has their American investment base in Boston, with $338 billion AUM as of 2012 (Source). That is about $330 billion more than all of South Florida.

The Boston area is also arguably the #1 biotechnology/life sciences cluster in the world, with a strong emphasis on medical research. This results in many major international biotech & pharma companies setting up offices in the area. These include but are not limited to Novartis, GlaxoSmithKline, AstraZeneca, Sanofi Aventis, Shire PLC, Merck, and Takeda, among many others.

You need to learn more about other cities before making these sort of statements.

You keep using irrelevant metrics. Bostons stronger and richer financial center but miamis is more diverse. Miami is inexpensive expansion and between NA and SA Banking and Finance | Latin American Investors | Leasing

Nothing could be more irrelevant than Miami having Latin banks. A bunch of small banks have offices in Miami...so what?

Boston's a stronger and richer financial center which reaches all over the globe, whether it be North America, Latin America, Europe or Asia. It really is that simple.

When US companies want to do business in Latin America they go to Sao Paulo, Mexico City etc not Miami. That's like saying if a US company want to do business with China they go to Monterrey Park, CA.

Latin America is big enough and important enough of a market that if any company is serious enough about that market they'll have significant local presence and whatever Latin America HQ they have in the US will most likely only employ a small handful of people for financial reporting purposes

Are you familiar with how these large investment houses operate? They operate far beyond American borders.

You are beating around the bush. Boston is stronger and richer but Miami is more international. It's the USHQ of 1400 South American businesses.

All this talk about Latin America as if the rest of the world does not exist.This is why Miami is where it is.So much of it is focused on one region that is actually one of the poorest after Africa.

Miami has one of the highest poverty rates as in the country as well as some of the wealthiest people.Income segregation is very high.

As I have said before Miami is not known for research and innovation.This is why so much of its growth is low wage jobs.

I think Miami like New Orleans is full of potential.Sure its getting better now but it still is a long way from its full potential as a truly international hub for the entire world,not just one region.
