Global economic recovery drives employment growth in Asia Pacific financial services sector
In the financial services industry, international factors, rather than regional factors, are increasingly becoming the main driving force for job growth. The changing requirements and standards of compliance and regulatory agencies are key to these changes. Increased economic confidence and increased economic activity in North America and Europe affect the operations of the Asia Pacific region. According to our observations, all markets in the Asia Pacific region showed positive development in the first quarter of 2014. However, in the job market, the number of candidates actively seeking jobs in the first quarter of 2014 was basically the same as that of the same period of last year, which seems to indicate that we will once again usher in an increasingly fierce “talent battle”.
