Corporate HQ and the Magnetic Pull of Cities - strategy+business
It was reported recently that the insurance giant Aetna would be moving its corporate headquarters from its ancestral home — Hartford, Conn. — to New York.

The move echoes a move that General Electric made last year, when it decided to move its corporate headquarters from suburban Fairfield, Conn., to…downtown Boston.

The dynamics driving Aetna’s move are quite similar to those that pushed GE to look elsewhere, as we noted last year.

Recent Research: Do Jobs Follow People, or People Follow Jobs? - SSTI
When General Electric (GE) announced earlier this month that it was moving to downtown Boston’s Seaport District, significant attention was paid to the generous incentive package handed to the company by Massachusetts. Ultimately, however, it was the human capital and innovative talent in the city that lured GE, according to the Chairman and CEO Jeff Immelt’s comments announcing the move. While conventional thinking suggests that attracting new businesses is a path to population and economic growth, new research suggests that this may not be the case.

Wells Fargo to Buy $32 Billion GE Assets, Add 3,000 Workers - Bloomberg Business
Wells Fargo & Co. agreed to buy $32 billion in assets from General Electric Co. and take on about 3,000 employees as the industrial giant retreats from financial services.
The sale includes commercial-distribution and vendor-finance units, and a portion of the corporate-finance business, from GE Capital, San Francisco-based Wells Fargo said Tuesday in a statement that didn’t include additional terms. The transaction is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2016 and would allow the finance unit to return about $4.2 billion of capital to its parent, GE said in a separate statement.
Wells Fargo has been one of the biggest buyers of GE assets. In September, the lender agreed to purchase the bulk of a railcar- and locomotive-leasing unit from the company, and earlier this year, Wells Fargo said it would acquire GE real estate assets.
