The Post-RDR IFA Market Is Going To Look Considerably Different

The post-RDR IFA market is going to look considerably different. Will there be many of today’s IFAs here to witness the change?

The Post-RDR IFA Market Is Going To Look Considerably Different

Transitions taking place amongst small and medium-sized IFA firms, as a result of measures demanded by the FSA’s Retail Distribution Review (RDR), are now well underway. But feedback from Reed Insurance jobs clients in this sector indicates that a sizeable number will simply close up shop when implementation becomes mandatory in 2012. Some industry experts have gone on record as saying that as many as 30% of IFAs will cease trading, selling their client banks on to IFAs of a similar size, or to the major players.

Finding fresh blood: a growing challenge

The implications for those firms that remain in the market are clear. Many fear that it will become harder to find people who want to provide independent financial advice, as firms get squeezed out of the market.

Changes to reward and remuneration structures mean that, while commission elements may be largely eliminated and basic salaries driven upward, earning potential will be reduced overall.

Sales-focused advisers with a hunger to maximise their earnings may leave the profession altogether for less heavily regulated sectors, while graduates might be attracted by the glitz of volume recruitment campaigns already being waged by blue chip names on the high street.

There is one glimmer of hope – because of the introduction of basic salaries, talented people currently working in the bancassurance market may be keener to explore opportunities with IFAs.

Employer Demand Drops 3% In March, As Reed Job Index Reads 102

Mixed signals for the UK economy on brink of Election call as demand for top finance and business services staff rises 4%.

Employer Demand Drops 3% In March, As Reed Job Index Reads 102

Demand from UK employers for new workers fell back overall in March, according to the Reed Job Index published today (Tuesday 6 April 2010).

The number of new job opportunities fell by 3 Index points (3%) to give a Reed Job Index reading of 102 in March compared to February’s high of 105.

In contrast, demand for key business services professionals across finance, general insurance and marketing rose in March. Employer demand for staff in these career sectors increased by 5 Index points (4%) compared to February, indicating growing confidence in this pre-recessionary heartland of the British economy.

Each month the Reed Job Index tracks the number of new job opportunities on offer compared to the previous month and against a baseline of 100 set in December last year. The Reed Job Index is based on data from the UK’s largest job board, reed.co.uk, which every day lists over 90,000 job opportunities from 8,000 recruiters across 37 career sectors throughout the UK.

The Reed Job Index figure stands at 102 in March, a 3 point decrease compared to February’s high of 105 – although it is still 2 points above December last year when the Index baseline was first set at 100.

However demand remained high for staff across the business services sector. New vacancy numbers rose most for Qualified Accountants, General Insurance plus Strategy and Consultancy professionals, with increased demand for Marketing and PR, and Banking staff close behind.

Demand fell most for Engineering, Scientific, and Manufacturing staff, demonstrating the continued weakness of these sectors in spite of the extra government support for them announced in last month’s Budget.

At the same time, the Public Sector Reed Index figure stands at 79, with demand for new staff lower in this sector than any other – although it has risen slightly above February’s low of 76.

Graduates looking for a job in banking could benefit from a recruitment drive operating across the square mile and Docklands, reports financial services recruitment agency Joslin Rowe

Worried graduates still looking for a job in banking could benefit from a little known recruitment drive operating across the square mile and Docklands, reports financial services recruitment agency Joslin Rowe.

Some of the biggest names in the financial services sector are recruiting for so called “graduate bootcamps” via recruitment consultancies. The bootcamp scheme aims to plug the extreme skills shortage currently affecting the banking sector by offering graduate jobs in banking (http://www.joslinrowe.com/graduate) on a temporary rather than permanent basis, where each recruit is intensively trained into a very specific junior role as an interim measure.

Alex Niarchos, manager of Joslin Rowe Temporaries, recruits graduates for many of London’s investment banks including the boot camp initiative. He says, “Essentially, the scheme gives banks the flexibility to hire someone straight away on an ongoing contract for as long as they need in a certain area which is particularly short staffed. Although this isn’t a permanent role it can often lead to one and however long or short the assignment, it does mean that graduates temping on the scheme will have considerable experience at the end of it and be eminently more employable.”

Applicants most likely to secure a graduate job in investment banking via the scheme are those with a 2:1 numerate or financially focused degree (or equivalent), who can demonstrate strong excel skills, an analytical mind and a real interest in financial services. Evidence of an internship in the City or work experience in a similarly fast paced, pressurised environment is particularly key. Typical roles available under the scheme encompass derivative operations, dividends, collateral management, equity trade support & settlements and even some middle office positions.

“There are a few core differences between the official graduate schemes and boot camp contracts,” advises Alex. “Obviously the prestige and security of securing a graduate banking job via the official graduate programme is immense and graduates, understandably, are often keen to join at the same time as a group of peers on a structured programme with plenty of hand holding. It is also true that the official scheme offers more varied rotations throughout the bank. However, boot camp contracts also offer training, both on and off the desk, and although new hires will be expected to grasp things quickly they are not just left to sink or swim. There is also an element of internal mobility and contracts can lead to a permanent job offer. Ultimately, it’s a path that should not be discounted out of career snobbery as it could be just the opening someone needs to really kick start their fortunes,” advises Alex.

Established in 1982, Joslin Rowe is one of the leading financial services recruitment firms in the UK and Ireland. On 7 April 2006, international staffing services company Vedior (headquartered in Amsterdam, the Netherlands) raised its stake in Joslin Rowe’s parent company, The Blomfield Group, from 18% to 70%. Jocelyn Rowe recruits for a number of graduate jobs in banking across London, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dublin including long-term contracts, temporary and permanent roles.
