After a bout of turmoil in the early part of the 21st century, the financial sector in New York has definitely taken a turn toward the positive. With positive growth in most sectors of the city and state’s economy, New York has seen positive gains in all sectors. However, the gains found in the financial services sector of New York have been among the most significant. Not only has this growth been significant, but it has also been intrinsically linked to the growth felt by New Yorkers coming out of the great recession of 2008.
The Financial Sector is Hiring
It’s a well-established fact that New York financial firms are providing some of the most attractive salaries available in the financial services sector today. However, it’s also important to note that these companies are still actively hiring people even as recovery continues. Every tier of the financial services sector is seeing positive gains from the lowest-tier traders to the highest executive positions. In fact, as the years roll on it’s actually been found that these companies are hiring more rather than less. This could be attributed to a number of factors, but consumer confidence in the financial markets has played a key role here.
As consumer confidence has started to come back, large and midsize financial firms have found themselves in a position to bring on a larger work force. Since confident investors make confident investments, the flow of money going into new markets has continued to grow and this has led to a number of positive results. For one, those seeking investors have found a more attractive environment to start a business in. Another benefit has been that this higher amount of cash flow in the markets has allowed for companies to bring in a larger amount of experienced traders.
