Financial Services, Banking,
& Fin-Tech

Navigating the evolving digital landscape of Financial Services, Banking, and Fin-Tech requires a diverse range of talent to drive innovation and adapt to changing demands.

The Financial Services Industry in South Africa is undergoing transformative changes driven by technology, evolving regulations, and shifting client expectations. This creates opportunities for innovation, differentiation, and attracting diverse talent. The industry draws from a broad talent pool, with increasing demand for professionals who can navigate geopolitical changes, technological advancements, and compliance requirements. South Africa’s financial sector is known for its sophistication, with a growing Fin-Tech sector driving digitisation. However, incumbents still dominate, posing challenges for Fin-Tech companies. Mobile and digital banking contribute to financial inclusion efforts, although cash transactions remain prevalent. South African companies are finding themselves in heightened competition for limited talent resources. This competition is notably with multinational corporations, which are readily hiring top South African talent through the use of remote working models.
