People who travel the United States know that there are still not only cultural differences based on the part of the country they are in, but also economic differences. Property values, taxation, transportation, climate – these are all factors which can impact the economies of a particular region of the country. Those factors also impact the way investors from particular regions of the country invest their money, consider their wealth status, and deal with financial advisors.
Regional Influences on Investor Decisions - Northeast examines behaviors and attitudes of American investors in the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York,Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont.
America’s initial region, the Northeast, is the most densely populated portion of the United States. With massive economic hubs in New York City, Boston and Philadelphia, the Northeast held sway over the American economy for decades, before fortunes and wealth spread to the rest of the United States along with a portion of the population. Home to the Vanderbilts, the Carnegies and Rockefellers, the Northeast was home to the American banking industry as it began to influence world trade and commerce.
Still today, the banking and insurance industries remain largely headquartered in the Northeast, and Wall Street remains in New York City, home to the nation’s’ largest and busiest stock exchange.
From the northern tip of Maine to the wide expanse of Pennsylvania, the Northeast is a region with well-established patterns of investment trends, and a long history of leading the way in American finance. Their investment accounts are among the most well-funded in the country, on average.
