Singletons in the two major global financial districts in London – Canary Wharf and Liverpool Street – are not only using electronic systems for closing trades on the stock and currency markets, but are some of the most active users of electronic dating applications.

Happn, an application which helps users find the people that they have crossed paths with, has released data which states that most of its activity within London has taken place at Canary Wharf and Liverpool Street underground stations, denoting a high level of use by those commuting to and from their executive roles in the financial sector.

Indeed, the use of social media applications within the online financial sector has mushroomed lately, however this particular usage is a diversion from attracting new customers to open online trading accounts, toward attracting members of the opposite sex via geotargeting,

Within London, Canary Wharf and Liverpool Street trumped other regions of the city which have a high population of young professionals, including Euston,

Euston, Stratford, Tottenham Court Road, King’s Cross St. Pancras, London Bridge, Waterloo, Piccadilly Circus and Brixton.

Marie Cosnard, head of trends at Happn, made a commercial statement on the matter

“Tube stations are famous for missed connections. We wanted to find out the best commuting hotspots for re-finding those missed connections and sparking a chance of love at second sight.”

It really is as simple as that – however next time you arrive at your trading terminal in one of London’s large FX companies, liquidity providers or interbank trading desks, spare a thought for those who are looking to take a different type of position altogether!
