“Hi…. I’m in Delaware.” ~ Wayne Campbell
Imagine chartering a private plane and being magically whisked away to Wilmington, the most populated city in Delaware. The first Swedish settlement on the continent, the city was founded on Fort Christina where the Brandywine and Christina Rivers converge before flowing into the Delaware River.
The city serves as the seat of New Castle County, and it’s one of the main cities in the Delaware Valley metropolitan area, which includes Philadelphia, PA and Camden, NJ, and carries a combined population of more than 7 million residents.
Although Wilmington doesn’t offer much in the way of luxury and excitement, it’s the most accessible city in the state, and its business-friendly environment has contributed to strong economic growth and a thriving private jet community.
As a result, the Riverfront and downtown areas handle nearly 700,000 passengers annually through Joseph R. Biden Jr. Railroad Station, named after the former Senator and U.S. Vice President who was a strong railway advocate and commuted along the line to/from Washington D.C.
One of the Most Business-Friendly Cities in the U.S.
Despite its relatively small city population and unfavorable crime rates in its metro area, Wilmington is one of the nation’s most important destinations for corporate aviation, mainly due to the city’s business laws and charters, with business jets and executive charter flights frequently flying to/from New Castle Airport.
In fact, Wilmington has one of the highest private jet ownership per capita ratios in the nation. Many of these private jets have owners elsewhere, and own the plane via trust. These trusts are often based in Wilmington. For similar reasons, Douglas Isle of Man has another one of the highest private jet ownership per capita ratios.
Since favorable regulations were enacted in 1981, Wilmington has become the national financial center of the credit card industry—the Financial Center Development Act of 1981 eliminated cap banks may legally charge interest rates, leading to major credit card providers to set-up headquarters here, including Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, and Barclays Bank.
In addition to the credit card industry, there are many other notable HQ’s located around the city: Dutch bank ING, HSBC have U.S. operations located here; Barclays and Capital One have prominent offices overlooking the Christina River; Wilmington Trust is headquartered at Rodney Square.
Other notable offices include insurance companies such as American Life Insurance Company, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Delaware, and retail banking giants like PNC Bank, Wachovia, JPMorgan Chase, HSBC, Citizens Bank, Wilmington Savings Fund Society, and Artisans’ Bank.
Along with all the financial entities come a variety of legal services. Worth noting is Delaware has among the most strict rules in the nation regarding out-of-state legal practice, not offering reciprocity to lawyers and attorneys who passed the bar in another state.
Since Delaware is the official state of incorporation for so many American companies, the city’s U.S. Bankruptcy Court is regularly one of the busiest federal bankruptcy courts out of a total of 94 spread across the United States.
Despite all of this, the city is home to only one Fortune 500 company, E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company. Still, the city is a corporate utopia, home to over 50% of the nation’s publicly traded companies, and more than 60% of Fortune 500 companies.
