Hiring Trends In The World's Leading Financial Services Cities

Over the last two years, the world was hit by one of the largest economic crises ever seen – market crashes, business closures, loss of jobs and subsequently high rates of unemployment, as city wide lockdowns resulted in volatile economic activity. While Covid-19 created unprecedented economic and financial uncertainty, after the initial shock, Financial Services started to rebound as governments around the world looked to stabilize their own economies through implementing a range of policies and stimulus packages.

Globally, the industry is still primarily influenced by New York and London, however we are seeing key players across Asia Pacific, such as Singapore, Hong Kong and Sydney, growing in momentum. As we continue to emerge from the aftereffects of the pandemic, what does this mean for the world’s leading Financial Services cities? Will we see a shift in the roles and skills required across the industry and where these professionals will be located?
