The Investment Banking and Asset Management industries are facing a serious skills gap, a problem that is partly due to the failure to respond to graduates’ needs. However, leading organisations are facing these challenges in robust and innovative ways.
This sector has always offered graduates many of the most popular, dynamic and challenging opportunities. Within a short amount of time, graduates will engage in high profile and demanding jobs, and will be rewarded accordingly. The Association of Graduate Recruiters (AGR) reports an average starting salary of £36,000, the highest of all industries. This high base is matched by equally impressive opportunities for growth.
