Gov. Ron DeSantis issued the following statement Thursday after giving financial leaders assurances that Florida is an attractive landing spot for new business and expansions.
“Today I met with leaders in New York’s financial industry to highlight Florida’s strong business climate and discuss the additional steps my administration is taking to deregulate and increase investment in our state,” the governor said. “I want companies and institutions in the financial and banking sector, including commercial banks, investment banks, hedge funds, FinTech and international financial institutions to know that Florida is a place where businesses can do well without having to face some of the political hostility that they deal with in other parts of the country. Our posture here is one of welcoming, not one of demagoguery and prejudice.”
DeSantis held scheduled meetings with TIAA, Macquarie, Biggins Lacy Shapiro & Company, LLC, BDO, JPMorgan Chase and DTCC.
