The following is issued on behalf of the Financial Services Development Council:

     The Financial Services Development Council (FSDC) and the Chinese University of Hong Kong today (January 26) jointly hosted a forum to provide university students and young graduates with information about careers in the financial services industry.

     Entitled "Landing a Job in Finance - Myths and Faux Pas", the forum was the seventh event under the FSDC's Practitioner Speaker Series, which aims to promote understanding of career choices in the financial services industry.

     Today's forum featured a partner of an international law firm, Davis Polk & Wardwell, Ms Bonnie Chan, who also serves as a council member of the FSDC. Ms Chan introduced various career options in the local financial industry, including those in financial regulators, legal firms, accountancy and banking. She also shared her views on opportunities and challenges for the future generation, providing students with insights and tips on the prospects of different jobs in the financial services industry. She said she hoped that the forum could help university students and young graduates to prepare themselves for a career in the financial services industry.

     The FSDC's Practitioner Speaker Series is a project developed between the FSDC and local universities, with speakers from the financial services industry giving talks to university students about important industry facts and the skill sets required in developing a career in financial services.

About the FSDC

     The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government established the FSDC in 2013 as a high-level, cross-sectoral advisory body to engage the industry in formulating proposals to promote the further development of Hong Kong's financial services industry and to map out the strategic direction for development.

     The FSDC set up five committees, namely the Policy Research Committee, the Mainland Opportunities Committee, the New Business Committee, the Market Development Committee and the Human Capital Committee, as the five streams of its work.
