Banking & Financial Services

The Indian financial services sector is one of the most complex, yet one of the most robust and innovative service segments of the Indian economy. Ranging from insurance to capital markets, banking to foreign direct investments and from mutual funds to private equity investments, the financial services sector is undoubtedly the mainstay of Indian economy, and is at par with international financial frameworks.

The Opportunity: Despite current uncertainty, the basic outlook for banking in India is one of long- term potential. Recent RBI announcement giving licenses to new banks has led to extreme activity in the BFSI sector like never before. Attrition is at an all-time high as private sector banks, rural banks and foreign banks rush to expand their branch networks creating a massive job opportunity in the sector.

Add to this the ever-burgeoning middle class that brings a growing credit culture and increasing financial sophistication. Given these factors, industry hiring has reached unprecedented levels.

Executives and senior management must inspire and orchestrate change in order to deliver sustainable positive results. Staying ahead of the game requires superior talent with a deep understanding of world markets, the nuances of risk and the vision to identify emerging opportunities. Simultaneously, the ability to keep up with changes in domestic regulation and demand is key.
