Raleigh has been named one of eight “emerging tech hubs you should pay attention to” by the international money transfer service TransferWise – and it’s the only U.S. city on the list.

Affordable housing, short commutes and being a good place for young families are cited as reasons tech companies and university graduates are flocking to the Triangle.

“The region … is anchored by cutting-edge research institutions from surrounding universities, growing high-tech companies like Bandwith and Yealink as well as Fortune 100 companies IBM, Cisco … and many more,” according to the TransferWise blog post.

The eight global cities named are as follows:

1. Eindhoven, Netherlands

2. Pune, India

3. Nicosia, Cyprus

4. Dublin, Ireland,

5. Raleigh

6. Hong Kong

7. Malmo, Sweden

8. Tel Aviv, Israel
