By Edlyn Cardoza
Crescent Communities has announced that The Bank of London has located its US Global Platform & Services headquarters at One Independence Center.
“We are excited to welcome The Bank of London to One Independence Center as the company expands its US footprint,” said Brendan Pierce, President of Commercial at Crescent Communities. “The Bank of London’s decision to locate here cements One Independence Center as the best Uptown location for a creative office atmosphere through the live, work, play environment that has been created on this block.”
With offices in London, New York, and Belfast, The Bank of London services banks, clearing houses, digital and traditional asset firms, governments, financial services companies, payment networks and non-financial brands seeking to launch financial products and services in-country and cross-border. With a $1.1 billion valuation, it is a pre-revenue bank to attain ‘unicorn’ status upon debut.
“Without doubt Charlotte has some of the best bank technology and business talent that the United States – and the world – has to offer. I should know. I spent some of the happiest years of my working life in Charlotte when employed by Wachovia Bank (now Wells Fargo). I’m beyond delighted to once again work in the Queen City as we transform banking for the betterment of all,” said Anthony Watson, Group Chief Executive & Founder of The Bank of London.
The Bank of London is adding to Charlotte’s impressive financial services and FinTech companies roster. This new location at One Independence Center can attract top-tier talent to help them grow and transform this industry.
“With The Bank of London building its US Center of Excellence in Charlotte, we continue to demonstrate that Charlotte is the epicenter of where finance and technology converge,” said Mayor Vi Lyles. “This announcement further builds on our strategic international partnerships, and I look forward to seeing The Bank of London’s growth in our city.”
