Impact on hiring for financial services jobs in Vegas

Sunday, April 17th, 2011

A banking commission is releasing results about the impact on hiring for financial services jobs in Vegas.

The continued focus on banks’ balance sheets together with recommendations on ring fencing the retail operations of institutions that have investment banking activities is likely to have a major impact on hiring say City recruiters.

Richard Webber, Director of Twenty Financial Services, a specialist recruiter feels that the recommendations around equity and debt ratios will have a direct impact on increasing the cost of funding. Consequently he expects that banks will divert headcount away from areas like proprietary trading towards other departments such as Treasury which can help them to maximise reduced liquidity. The recommendations around increasing competition is also likely to have an impact – leading to possible rich pickings for smaller institutions and hedge funds: “Ultimately, this was never going to be good news for the bulge bracket investment banks. The Commission is very firmly set on a path to both make the UK banking system more stable while at the same time making the market for financial services more competitive. We expect smaller Investment Banks and Hedge Funds to capitalise on this, and poach business and staff from the top tier firms leading to a real war for talent. This in turn could push base salaries and bonuses even higher.” (more…)

Gains in travel and tourism led the upswing and momentum. (more…)
