Is Singapore Lacking Key Professionals in the Finance Sector?

A recent HR survey conducted by recruitment consultancy Egon Zehnder has found a huge 8 in 10 of Singapore's Chief Executive Officers reportedly find it difficult to source qualified finance professionals in the city-state. (8 in 10 is approximately 83% of all individuals surveyed).

The number rises to 85% who foresee it will become even more difficult to do so in the next 5 - 10 years.

Egon Zehnder stated that the Situation in Singapore is similar to rest of Asia: there is high demand for financial professionals as company expansion is leading to a recruitment drive for experts with a commercially savvy fiscal aptitude who can give businesses a competitive advantage
