Miami could become the financial capital of the world, according to billionaire Ken Griffin.
Griffin made his remarks in an interview with Bloomberg.
“We’ll see how big Wall Street South becomes,” Griffin said.
“Miami I think represents the future of America.” Griffin added. “Incredibly vibrant economy.”
He also praised local governments relative to other parts of the country, “particularly at the county and state levels.”
Griffin, who is the founder of Citadel, moved his company from Chicago to Miami last year.
He is planning a headquarters tower in Brickell expected to cost of over $1 billion, and has already made major philanthropic contributions here.
In the future, New York could be referred to as Brickell north after it is overtaken by Miami, Griffin said.
