Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and are drawn to commerce, trade and making deals. Some pursue sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or in management roles in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

Technology is changing banking and financing rapidly. This is occurring at every level of the sector. In personal banking customers are increasingly conducting all their banking online, leading to a decrease in the number of physical branches banks maintain.

In financial trading and investment banking, computer programs can calculate and execute trades in seconds, meaning the market moves at rapid speeds. This is facilitated by technology and the extremely high skills in maths, programming and physics required to sign and exact these computer programs. These skills are extremely highly prized and attract many at the very pinnacle of these fields. Investment analysts can construct complex models to assess and assist them in making investment decision.

Cybersecurity and secure payment methods are two of the areas in Fintech that are growing in importance. The sector offers good, rewarding careers for those skilled with computers and building products that improve the efficiency of financial services. 

But it’s not just tech skills in demand, there are a diverse range of careers available in FinTech, with companies developing FinTech products requiring staff in areas such as sales, design, marketing, product development and marketing.
