Australia the gateway to Asia-Pacific job markets

Australia the gateway to Asia-Pacific job markets
For businesses looking to expand into the Asia-Pacific region, Australia is strategically key to successful growth, says Tim Moran, Senior Business Manager of the leading Banking and Finance recruiter, Huxley Associates.
Australia has significantly invested in Asia over the years, and has one of the largest pool of investment fund assets in the world, said Tim. According to Pensions & Investments and Towers Watson research, assets held by Australian funds grew at the second fastest rate during the five-year period to the end of 2009.
Add to that the fact that China is Australias biggest trading partner, with two-way trade surging 30 per cent to A$83bn during the depths of the global downturn in June 2009, and you can see why it had been an easy call for Huxley to set up an office here in Sydney this month.
As a specialist in Banking & Finance recruitment, Huxley has seen placements of senior Banking & Finance professionals increase by 43% globally in the last six month, and we view Australia as the linchpin in our global expansion strategy.The good news about the Australian and Asia-Pacific Banking & Finance markets is further compounded by the current stability in global markets and the historic agreement on new capital and liquidity rules for banks. With a positive reception to Basel III across Australia and the APAC banking hubs, an upsurge in demand for exceptional Banking & Finance professionals is certainly expected. Huxley is confident that it is well-placed to meet the recruitment requirements of both its Australian and Asia-Pacific clients it supports economic growth at both a global and local level, and has an extensive database of senior professionals who are based in Australia, Asia, the UK, mainland Europe and the US.
