A Diverse Pool of Talent

Geneva has numerous advantages as a financial center. They include its know-how, quality, service orientation and spirit of innovation. Thanks to its international reputation, Geneva benefits from a highly qualified workforce. Switzerland ranks among the top 5 in the world according to Business Environment Risk Intelligence (BERI). The human factor remains crucial if Geneva is to capitalize on these strengths. The financial center needs to attract, train, and retain talented professionals who are capable of meeting current and above all future challenges.

 

The Geneva Financial Center is committed to:

  • Facilitate constructive dialogue with cantonal authorities to develop high-quality training and encourage excellence.
  • Organise events that promote information sharing and encourage young people to choose a career in finance.

 

Encouraging Excellence

The Geneva Financial Center (GFC) believes that access to highly skilled employees is a central requirement for a competitive financial center. The Foundation consequently supports educational initiatives ranging from apprenticeships to fundamental research, as well as professional and continuing education.
