Nigel Green, CEO of deVere Group, said: “The order of the top five destinations changes with each group of grads we take on, but New York, Dubai, Hong Kong, Sydney and Abu Dhabi are typically in the top ten somewhere. This is because, quite understandably, these global hubs of finance and commerce represent centers of enormous possibilities for young, ambitious individuals about to embark on careers as international wealth-advisory professionals.”
Mr. Green added: “There are some common traits among-st these cities, including that English is commonly spoken, they are politically and economically stable, there is a high level of internationally-minded high net worth individuals, and by relocating to these places one can usually expect comparatively high financial rewards. With each of the top five destinations offering unique opportunities and challenges, each one attracts grads who have often quite markedly different strengths and weaknesses, skill sets and aspiration.”
