KUALA LUMPUR: The shortage of talent remains acute in high growth areas such as wealth management, Islamic finance and investment advisory services, Bank Negara governor Tan Sri Dr Zeti Akhtar Aziz said the failure to arrest the issue would result in low productivity, slow pace of innovation and lost opportunities.
“In a fast changing and increasingly complex financial landscape, our workforce in the financial sector must not only rise above current challenges but be equipped to excel in the significantly changed environment,” she said at the opening of the Asian Institute of Finance (AIF) International Symposium 2011 here on Thursday.
The AIF was initiated by Bank Negara and established jointly with the Securities Commission in 2009.
