The key drivers of the financial and insurance sectors at the moment are in business transformation as companies become more digital and technology driven and seek to improve overall customer experience. The threat to the major financial services institutions is very clear from smaller more agile fintech companies that threaten to steal market share as the ease of sourcing alternative financial products grows. In order to keep up and retain their customers, financial institutions must become more agile and improve their customer touch points.
For a long time, new market entrants found it extremely difficult to break into the financial services industry.
However, fintech disruptors have been finding a way in. These disruptors are fast-moving companies, often start-ups, focused on a particular innovative technology or process in everything from mobile payments to insurance. And, they have been attacking some of the most profitable elements of financial services.
Cybersecurity is another major threat to the financial and insurance services industries. Financial institutions are investing heavily in counter measures, however a major challenge is keeping up with the evolving practices of cyber criminals. This issue potentially affects billions of customers globally and is top of the agenda.
The main challenge with recruiting into the financial and insurance sectors is the constant evolution of the industries with regard to digital and technological transformation. These companies are at the forefront of change in terms of how they operate internally, as well as engage with their customers. The need to source very niche and very new skill sets is in very high demand, and low supply of candidates is one of the biggest challenges throughout Asia Pacific and globally. Consequently, we source talent in our local markets as well as from other major global finance markets such as New York, London, Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore.
The industries are also very highly regulated and often require talent with direct industry experience, which can also shrink the available talent pool. At Rubicor we counter this issue with a deep knowledge of each and every client and the talent pools through which we can source specific to each client.
As a valued partner of many major financial institutions, Rubicor has consistently demonstrated an ability to support the evolving needs of financial and insurance institutions to ensure they can continue to grow and keep up with the changing industry landscape.
