Career 101: Getting Started

Taking the first step into Wealth Management is exciting.  But getting started is often confusing.  There are so many options to select from.

You have to decide if you really want to pursue a career in wealth management.  Once you are somewhat certain, you either select the brands (we meant banks) or decide strategically as what we think would be an intellectual selection process.

The Intelligent Selection Process – 

  • Retail Banks or Private Banks
  • Banks or Non-Banks
  • Advisory or Non-Advisory
  • Onshore or Offshore
  • Front Office or Middle Office

But this isn’t the lingo / terms / jargons you were taught in college.  So it doesn’t really help you at all.  What is going through your mind is you want an important and cool wealth management role, not some supporting administrative clerical job.

So the simple way to get started is what most fresh graduates will logically do – Select the biggest bank to join.

 

The (Perceived) Biggest Bank

DBS Bank
DBS Bank
Singapore International Banks Private Banks
DBS Bank Citibank UBS
OCBC Bank HSBC Bank Credit Suisse
UOB Bank

 

The Search or Research

After some daydreaming, you wise up knowing there are more banks to join.  Either you start thinking of your parents’ credit cards’ banks or retail branches you had seen before.  And finally, you decide to google it for what should be a few genius key-strokes.

Search No.1 : Career, Banking, Wealth Management

Throwing you tons of career websites.

Then you try again

 

Search No. 2: Banks, SG

The list of options just became unimaginably, long.  And it became random, disorganising your research process.  You realise there are just too many options and unclear searched patterns.

Given the number of options, there is no way you want to send your resume to all of them.  It is just too much time, knowing the odds of getting called up for interview is low.  Let us summarize for you.

 

Types of Financial Institutions

Financial District

In Singapore, there are

  • 14 Retail Banks
  • 47 Leading Private Banks
  • 10 Large Insurance Companies
  • 35 Fund Management Firms
  • And many more ..

Now the sheer numbers of financial institutions you can join, just exploded.  You now have more than 100 options to choose from.  You may also like to know there are more than 14,000 business-related graduates from universities in Singapore every year.

 

Getting Started: How?

This is a big challenge.  How do you get started?  Before you start your first job and jump into a wealth management career, you want to get a better understanding.  After all, you had spent 10 years in pre-college and 4 to 6 years in colleges.  How you start your career is going to affect the next 40 years of your life, assuming you are going to work from 25 to 65.
