Three different out-of-town financial firms are eying the Tampa Bay for future expansion. If they get what they want, this could mean that an upward of 1,000 new financial jobs could soon be headed to Tampa.
New York-based Depository Trust & Clearing Corp.; Maitland-based Digital Risk LLC; and a third and unnamed financial company are all looking to expand, and, apparently, Tampa is looking like a suitable option according to the Tampa Bay Times.
Depository Trust & Clearing is currently weighing their options between expanding to either Jersey City, N.J. or here in Tampa. If the company chooses Tampa, it will bring 255 new jobs which will all pay more than $80,000 - double the average salary of Hillsborough County.
If Depository Trust & Clearing chooses Tampa they'll also contribute a $4.8 million invested to their already-existing local operations near Bruce B. Downs and I-75.
Digital Risk LLC, based out of Maitland, FL, could bring nearly 600 jobs with an average salary of $50,000 to the Tampa Bay area soon as well. Joining these other potential companies hiring in Tampa, Digital Risk LLC provides risk analysis for mortgage lenders and debuted at 122nd place on Inc. 500's list of the nation's fastest-growing private companies.
A third unnamed company could bring 110 financial jobs paying around $50,000 to the North Tampa area. The company remains unnamed because the state used its "qualified target industry" tax refund program (QTI) which allows a company to remain anonymous if they so choose.
At this time of writing none of these potential expansions have been finalized, but all are up for review by both the Hillsborough County Commission and Tampa City Council this Thursday, November 15.
