Digitalisation, pandemic, geopolitical uncertainty, changing perceptions of clients and others are leading financial institutions to reconsider their business models and priorities. Two emerging trends – Fintech and ESG – are rising to the top of the agenda for various stakeholders and market participants in Hong Kong.

While attention appears to be placed more on the business operation implications then on talent development in the past, a majority of financial institutions agree that they will need more talent around Fintech and ESG in the coming three years. However, the reality is, at the moment only the larger players have come up with a more concrete blueprint.

The Financial Services Development Council (FSDC) launched a research report on financial talents in the digital and sustainable economy of Hong Kong through our Industry Exchange Series webinar on 16 August 2021. At the webinar, distinguished speakers explored measures that can facilitate Hong Kong to cultivate local talents in Fintech and ESG as well as to attract outside talents to enrich its financial talent pool.
