Financial services salary trends for the year ahead
Despite a challenging period after the Global Financial Crisis, the financial services industry retains the perception of offering a generous salary scale – a big drawcard for many candidates. However, what is growing in equal importance for this sector is work-life balance.
Soft skills in demand
As stakeholder management becomes increasingly important for financial services professionals, soft skills such as strong language proficiencies are held in high regard, particularly for candidates who are fluent in Cantonese, English and Mandarin.
Technical skills are critical
Companies are seeking candidates with specialist skills who can navigate a stricter regulatory environment and minimise the rising cost of compliance. The most sought-after candidates will be those who can stay abreast of changing regulations and streamline compliance.
