The employment outlook will be good for Financial and investment analysts (NOC 1112) in Quebec for the 2017-2019 period.

The following factors contributed to this outlook:

  • Employment growth will lead to several new positions.
  • A moderate number of positions will become available due to retirements.
  • There are a small number of unemployed workers with recent experience in this occupation.

Employers usually require a university degree in commerce, business administration or economics, as well as on-the-job training and the participation in industrial programs. Employers are looking for workers with such personal skills as autonomy, rigour, attention to detail, organizational skills, as well as the ability to work in a team and to interact with senior management. Knowledge of the Microsoft Office suite, in particular a proficiency in MS Excel, as well as bilingualism (both orally and in writing) are often sought-after assets.

Employment growth for this occupational group will be generated essentially by the expansion of the finance and insurance sector. The diversification of financial products for individuals and businesses, the aging of the population leading to a rising demand for financial advisory services related to retirement and estate planning, the increasing values of investment portfolios, as well as longer opening hours of financial institutions that wish to improve customer service, will support the hiring of these professionals.
