Québec Good   (3 of 3 stars) 2015-05-29

The employment outlook for financial and investment analysts in Quebec is good for the 2014—2016 period. Over the next few years, most labour requirements will result primarily from employment growth, which will be significantly higher than that of all occupations combined. Some job openings may also be generated by retiring workers, although the proportion of analysts age 55 and older is less that of workers overall. Analysts with experience can be appointed to securities manager positions, which may create additional job opportunities.

There are recruitment problems in this occupation because of the limited pool of available qualified workers, which is caused primarily by a buoyant job market for analysts. These recruitment problems will make entering the labour market fairly easy for university graduates from training programs giving access to this occupation. Because the share of immigrants is higher in these occupations than on average, there may be job openings for workers from outside the province who meet the occupational requirements.

Employment growth in this occupational group will be generated primarily by the expanding finance and insurance sectors, more specifically in credit intermediation and related activities, securities, commodity contracts and other related financial investment activities. Employment growth will also depend on trends influencing employment in public administration, but to a lesser extent.

The diversification of financial products for individuals and businesses, population aging, which is fuelling an increase in the demand for personalized retirement and estate-planning financial advice, the increase in value of investments, as well as the restructuring of financial institutions seeking to improve customer service by increasing the number of service points or by extending business hours, will promote the hiring of financial and investment analysts to work in financial institutions. However, the scope of government spending cuts and the overall freeze on public and parapublic sector hiring, resulting from a desire to balance budgets, may have a negative impact on employment in public administrations.
