By CorpGov Editorial Staff
In an interview with CBS12’s Lauren Olesky, participants at the 3rd Annual Palm Beach CorpGov Forum explained how capital formation and funding of businesses is fueling the economic growth of West Palm Beach, Florida, contributing to its role as Wall Street South. Large investment banks, as well as national and international companies are relocating or expanding their operations to this city, which is no longer a sleepy retiree destination.
Ms. Olesky spoke to Jonathan Feldman, a Partner at Goodmans LLP, who explained that the influx of financial companies leads to more local high-paying jobs as well as new opportunities for wealth creation. Edward Kovary, Managing Director at BTIG, said that investors increasingly prefer to meet in West Palm Beach and benefit from the city’s financial offerings as an alternative to the major city centers of New York, Chicago, or Boston. She also spoke to IPO Edge and CorpGov Editor-in-Chief John Jannarone, who founded the company in 2017.
