I'm a little surprised that Paris isn't on the list and that D.C. is so high, but otherwise, it seems like a pretty good list.

I'm very surprised Paris isn't on there as well. Would've thought that to be one of the leaders of this list.

There's something looking like a CBD near Paris called La Défense but that tiny buisness district is hardly comparable to the top dogs in finance that are London and Frankfurt. London is the leading financial place in the world (for now), Frankfurt is the leading financial place in Germany (and, de facto, of the Eurozone) and seat of the European Central Bank. La Défense cannot compete with the City or Mainhattan.

March 2016 = before the Brexit vote, and three years before Brexit (assuming it happens). That top spot is being given away.
