The Index uses a number of factors to identify the most economically vibrant cities across the world such as Population aged 15 and over, Median disposable income, University ranking, Retail sales and Productivity. Cities are then ranked in the Index to provide a view of where some of the biggest global real estate opportunities lie. Around 900 cities form the full Index, explore the top 30 below.
A top-ranked global city is an international hub for business and culture. It has a large and diverse economy with a strong cultural scene, education and world-leading infrastructure. It's a city that's difficult to replicate, so it attracts some of the best talent. The Schroders Global Cities Index looks to identify and rank some of the best and brightest global cities.
