Which finance house hires the most attractive people? According to one dating app, it's Goldman Sachs. Goldman employees were 15.8 percent more attractive than the average Hinge user, according to data compiled for CNBC. Workers at Barclays and UBS were close behind. "We found that on average users who work in financial services industries are more sought after or eligible than the average Hinge user," said Karen Fein, Hinge's director of marketing. Across each bank measured, employees ranked more attractive than the average user. There was not a statistically significant sample size of workers using Hinge at Deutsche Bank, Credit Suisse, RBC Capital Markets, Wells Fargo or HSBC to be included in the analysis. Interestingly, each group was picky to a smaller degree than they were attractive. For example, Barclays workers were 15 percent more attractive but 1.6 percent less picky than the average user. Meanwhile, Goldman users were only 5.6 percent more choosy despite being 15.8 percent more attractive. Despite their relatively good looks, perhaps these Wall Streeters see the value of having options on and off the trading floor.

Goldman Sachs workers edge out Barclays and UBS as the most attractive in the financial field, according to dating app, Hinge.
