Careers in Banking and Financial Services Throughout Switzerland


Zürich, Switzerland -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/22/2021 -- In 2011, ABN AMRO sold its Swiss Private Banking business to UBP, shortly afterwards Morgan Stanley and Merrill Lynch followed suit, each selling their International Private Banking units to Credit Suisse and Julius Baer. In 2020 this trend continued and more recently, it was broadcasted that Rothschild are set to purchase Banque Paris Bertrand, plus, Intesa Sanpaolo have acquired 69% of REYL. As recruitment leaders in banking and financial services Selby Jennings keep a close eye on acquisitions and consolidations and how they create opportunities from a hiring perspective. For example, where acquisitions and consolidations created opportunities with regards to job-placements, these transitions can also be slow, bureaucratic, and often have internal implications, thus causing prior content bankers to consider new opportunities. On the flipside, as frontrunners in the industry, Selby Jennings are able to identify that those perceived to be a growing bank, committed to Private Banking and on the lookout for opportunities, can be incredibly useful when trying to attract top talent.

Thanks to the firm's global network of bankers, contacts, and client reach, Selby Jennings have outlined some vital recruitment trends for careers in financial services and banking. As a firm they have noted that due to pressures on revenues and the uncertain COVID-19 landscape there will be career opportunities for Private Bankers as a direct result of the rise in acquisitions and consolidations. Thanks to continued remote working, there should also be a rise in digitilisation and tech advancements, furthermore, this will lend itself to those bankers looking to make tactical moves. The pandemic should also increase the gap between the very best and the intermediate Private Banker. Moreover, clients will be looking for specialists who they have had a very strong relationship with, so when hiring throughout 2021, Selby Jennings have noted the importance of identifying Bankers who have exceptionally strong client relationships.
