Cities to Consider for A Career in FinanceNovember 14, 2017
The global demand for professionals in finance is on the rise. Specifically, as the global economy is rising from the downtime. As it continues to recover, there are gaps being discovered by the human resource development teams, in skills requirements and expertise. Now there are finance jobs that can be found in most cities around the world, but there is a huge difference in the skill set and sector where the opportunity arises. A career in finances in most cases is considered very lucrative. A move to a new city will only be worthwhile for a financial professional if the place they plan to shift to has good opportunities, and to simply put it, you are able to increase your take-home considerably after paying off all the taxes and housing expenses.
London, Germany, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan are the most competitive countries, ideal if you are looking for a stable career in finance. The financial sectors in these cities are best, where plenty of jobs exist in the financial sector almost across all levels. For example, London has the largest financial sector in the world, Germany represents the economy in the Eurozone, as a result, it has the financial sector to set policy for the massive union of economic interest. Canada is a viable option because of the geographical advantage it presents, by being closest to the world’s largest economy. Hong Kong hires the highest number of financial professionals because of the central position in the Asian financial sector. Also, Japan’s stock market and financial sector offer a significant area of employment. The US is also the most sought-after destination for financial professionals.
