Hong Kong Risk Managers Eager to Enter Greater Bay Area Markets


Hong Kong, China -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/10/2022 -- The growing Greater Bay Area (GBA) represents a huge opportunity for those in risk management jobs, as well as many other fields in banking and financial services today. Recent comments from Carrie Lam, Hong Kong's Chief Executive, indicate that the 14th Five-Year plan puts Hong Kong firmly in a very visible position as a global centre for risk management. In fact, Lam made it clear that the industry has a vital role to play in helping to ensure that the GBA is able to realise its full potential in the coming years. Various measures are now being put in place to help facilitate the development of this market, which is one of the reasons why there is such enthusiasm among Hong Kong risk managers to enter the GBA. This includes the introduction of a unilateral recognition policy and the development of various innovative insurance products in the years to come.

Risk management jobs look set for more expansion as the GBA markets continue to grow. Selby Jennings is a firm with extensive experience in hiring for this field, as well as for many other connected areas, including corporate and investment banking, fintech, quantitative research and trading, and legal and compliance.
