  • 14 Retail Banks
  • 47 Leading Private Banks
  • 26 Large Fund Management Firms
  • 3 Finance Companies
  • 10 Life Insurance Companies
  • 13 Stock Brokering Firms

With so many financial institutions, since 2005, banking employees change jobs very often.  Our statistical studies show the average wealth manager switches at least 3 banks.  Wealth managers usually settle down at the 3rd bank onwards, for a longer period of time.

Changing a job for wealth managers isn’t so fun.  New system, new administrative structure, new colleagues to work with to provide the best advisory experience for your clients.

 

3. Number of Wealth Managers in Singapore

  • > 4,000 Personal Bankers & Priority Bankers
  • > 3,000 Private Bankers
  • > 15,000 Investment Professionals
  • > 13,000 Life Insurance Agents
  • > 80,000 Financial Advisors (Licensed)

With the numbers rapidly changing, increasing, high turnover, going on garden leave, we have a hard time keeping track.  But the sheer numbers of wealth & investment professionals in Singapore will give you a good indication of how competitive the industry is.

What is garden leave?

An employee who had resigned or left the employment, has to remain away from work during the period.  The employee is to being paid during this period.  Garden leave are usually given to employees who hold sensitive or important roles.
