Lennart Augustsson works for Credit Suisse, using a Haskell DSEL to 
generate financial models for execution by clusters running Excel. 
(This I gleaned from him in IRC the other day; apologies to Lennart if I 
misremember the specifics.)

I believe that Goldman Sachs might be using Haskell, too, but I don't 
know for sure (they have at least one ex-Yale FRP person, at any rate).

Wall Street has long had a fondness for esoteric technologies (APL, 
Linda, you name it).  I'm sure there are more Haskell users lurking 
there somewhere.
