2021 Mid Year Review and Look Ahead (South East Asia)

Looking back and moving forward

When setting out plans for this year, it’s easy to look back on 2020 with doubt; a historic period, in the wake of Covid-19, characterised by financial insecurities and an overall fall in market confidence. Against this backdrop, financial services institutions faced many challenges such as increasing costs, fluctuating stock markets, to a heightening of asset risk, but opportunity is emerging on the horizon.

On the onset of 2021, positive momentum and rapid growth is forecasted for the South East Asian financial services market; one that is inextricably linked to operational recovery from the pandemic. Last year, despite the prominent freeze in hiring, the dynamic recruitment landscape has bounced back in 2021.
