What Else Do I Need to Know?
- The industry is comprised primarily of small businesses. 86.2% of businesses operating in Finance and Insurance businesses employ four people or less.
- Employment Outlook for Banking, Credit and other Investment Managers in the Ottawa Economic Region is expected to be fair. Demand for this occupation is expected to remain stable supporting the positive performance of the financial services industry in Ontario. The majority of job openings are expected to be created by business expansions in banks, credit unions, sales financing, and mortgage companies, where the majority of these managers are employed. Over the past several years profits at these financial based companies have increased substantially. In the same period, major banks opened more than 200 new branches across the province, improving the employment possibilities for these managers. Investments in financial products are more sensitive to income growth; therefore over the next few years, expected gains in employment and greater stability in business conditions should improve the investment capacity of consumers and support demand for some of these managers.
- The labour force of this occupation is large. Unemployment is returning to pre-recession levels. There is significant growth in new business entrants, particularly among companies specialising in securities, commodity contracts, and other financial investment services. These operations are the second largest employer of these professionals. However, increased online banking/investment services could slow demand in the mid- to long- term.
- In addition to a relevant College or University qualification, individuals with extensive experience in the financial services industry and with a strong background in sales and client service will have more favourable job prospects. Depending on the type of financial service operation, employers may require recruits to hold a financial services certification, such as a Mutual Funds Licence, or to have completed the Canadian Securities Course.
