In the latest episode of CareerCast, we focus on our ability to accept change in the investment industry’s career landscape. First up, we talk to Simon Ng, CFA CEO/MD of CCB International (Singapore), who examines how developments in the wealth management and asset management space, such as digitalisation, mean that successful candidates must possess ‘AAA’ skills: be Adaptable, Agile and Able. In other words, someone who is flexible, can communicate effectively with their customers and flourish in a dynamic business environment. 


Over the past few years, CFA Institute has produced a series of reports that look into the Future of Finance. The most recent publication studies what the future may hold for the Investment Professional of the Future. We are therefore delighted to be joined by Nick Pollard, CFA Institute MD Asia Pacific, who also highlights the need for candidates to be responsive to progress in the financial world.
