The Bigger Risk To Financial Services Jobs Is Automation Or Robots Not Brexit
Ignore the threat to financial services industry jobs of Brexit. You should be much more worried about the threat of robots. Job automation is the biggest finance sector threat and opportunity.
Job Automation Risk To Your Financial Sector Job
No doubt. Financial services industry is very important to the UK economy. If financial services jobs were lost other sectors would be affected. Fewer services jobs needed to service those in financial services jobs!
Many jobs in financial services are high paid jobs. Top British bankers are paid much more than elsewhere. Resistance to moving to Germany is as much about personal reasons. The UK economy may or may not suffer after Brexit. Bankers will suffer.
However people in financial services are facing automation existential threat. Never mind moving to Germany your job is going full stop!
FinTech company jobs will be prevalent. Bankers less so. Most financial services jobs can be done faster cheaper better. Robots will be
more reliable and
after a few years significantly cheaper
How long do you think the C Suite will keep your job. If job automation is better for bonuses your job is toast!
Existing financial services jobs are like UK miners jobs. The buildings will remain but the people in them will be different. Cyber security and fintech risk managers will be plentiful.
Banks insurers and funds will need cyber experts. They will stop external and internal threats to money.
Fintech risk managers will direct risk appetite and risk tolerance
C suite virtual bankers insurers fund managers will be wealthier
Wealthier investors but more at risk of systemic industry collapse
Software developers will frequent the bars and restaurants. Existing financial services people will be there waiting on tables!
Most existing financial services jobs will be lost to job automation. Do not doubt this for a second!
However it is not all doom and gloom. The key to survive is to move into the new financial services sector jobs. Some new financial services jobs do not exist right now! You must change your skills set to take advantage and survive.
Its not just the top bankers that need worry. Indeed they are the ones most likely to easily morph. Financial services jobs most at risk
Financial and investment advice
Any financial services sector job your current phone app replaces!
Consumers have a choice to use financial services apps and websites. In future the consumer will have no choice. Financial services consumers will not speak to people. People will be gone replaced by job automation. The robots will have taken over the financial services world!
There is no point in complaining. No point arguing with us. Better spending your time reskilling instead. Stop worrying about Brexit. Start retraining to overcome threat of job automation. Learn tech skills not German!

The long list of failures to manage enterprise risks is too depressing to list here. Such a waste of time, money and life!What an opportunity cost to corporate entities and society.
The only long lasting positive thing to come out of each major risk event or negative aggregation risk outcome is legislation
Our present crop of senior managers executives fund managers and politicians are not any worse or better than previous ones. Talking a good game about risk governance or compliance GRC is often followed by another failure to manage risks with all stakeholders in mind.
Eventually the general public start looking for heads to lop off and new legislation is written that can often be more risk-averse than it needed to be but The People got sick of the incompetence at the top and something had to be done.
Business leaders and politicians often moan about statutory legislation but if managers could manage risks better we wouldn’t need more legislation. Recent examples of major risk events or aggregation of regular failure to manage smaller risk events are more examples of our key risk decision makers failing and more legislation is required to fill the gap in risk management knowledge and/or failing corporate risk management culture.
22nd February 2018 Members of UK’s Parliament MPs Question Pensions Regulator In Public
The Pensions Regulator head with responsibility for monitoring pensions and protecting pensioners in UK admitted to MPs that the Pensions Regulator needed to be clearer quicker and tougher in using its powers to force companies to pay more into their pension schemes.
As an example of the Pensions Regulator’s failure one could highlight Carillion where many thousands of pensioners face reduced pensions. Carillions pension Trustees asked the Pension Regulator in 2010 and 2013 to force Carillion to put more money into it’s pension scheme. The Pension Regulator twice refused and the Pension Regulator CEO since 2015 admitted that it should have done more to extract higher pension contributions from Carillions executive management team.
Carillions executives have claimed that a failing Qatar contract was one of the main causes of Carillions collapse, but auditors KPMG say that was not a cause of Carillion’s collapse.
KPMG tried to defend their auditing of Carillion’s accounts in 2016 and 2017, but the business select committee chairperson said she would not hire you KPMG to audit the contents of my fridge.
Much criticism has been expressed about the system of corporate governance in UK’s biggest companies. Who is responsible for the loss of pension benefits for Carillion pensioners is not clear but what is clear that the current system of corporate governance and risk management is not working for stakeholders like pensioners majority of employees contractors shareholders and corporate customers. The winners are winning big and the losers are losing big!
20th February 2018 UKs Pension Regulator Ignored Trustees Of Collapsed Outsourcing Firm Carillion
The pensions regulator twice ignored requests from trustees of Carillion to force the company to fill Carillion’s pension black hole.
The pensions regulator has come under fire from UK’s members of parliament for failing to take steps to protect Carillion’s pension scheme members, especially as they were asked twice by the trustees of the pension before Carillion collapsed. When Carillion collapsed, the firm had pension liabilities of around £3 billion.
With characteristic alacrity, the Pensions Regulator started its arduous process of chasing money down from Carillion a few days after it was formally announced there was no money left Frank Field chair of parliaments Work and Pensions Committee.
BusinessRiskTV Are Oxfam Carillion and Growing Skills Gap in UK USA Japan just some of the more recent examples of the senior management malaise, or examples of systemic failure of current crop of capitalists?
Every day you can find multiple great ideas that could potentially disruptive the current way of doing things. My favourites at the moment are flying modes of transport that could easily replace vehicles that have to travel on roads and flying machines that briefly go to space to get to their destination quicker. They may seem like far off technological developments, but the technology works now. Its flight rules and regulations that will hold them back to protect carmakers and airplane makers not technology risks.
Everyday new innovative ideas and products flood onto the market. For most it will be like Tomorrows World. The innovative ideas will not be sustainable. We want to work with people who want to take over the world in a good way!
Your brand maybe vulnerable to others who have been thinking differently, or from changes to the marketplace. It may fail cause your performance ain’t good enough, or because your competitors change the rules of the game.
How you fail may not matter too much after you’ve failed. It will be too late to consider what you are doing wrong. Kodak didn’t want to change when they had to change to survive. They were making too much money from photographs to change to embrace digital photography. Market changes can kill the best businesses.
The best form of defence is often attack
Being more innovative or creative can be frightening. Picking the wrong horse in a paddock of new opportunities can be very costly. Innovation can also be exciting and highly rewarding.
We aim to make innovation for you more exciting and rewarding as well as reducing the uncertainties that accompany innovation and creativity. Disruptive innovators can draw on our tips advice and support to become more successful with more certainty.
Beating your competitors to top high performing talent
Fill your skills gaps faster to increase your business productivity with better access to more high-performing recruits. Attract develop and retain talent your competitors can’t find or attract.
A growing skills gap in the UK Australia and USA will hold back organisations who are not more innovative and creative with their recruitment process. It is one of the biggest threats to corporate objectives this year.
Retaining increasingly expensive employees is also key to improve business model sustainability.Its more profitable to keep talented high performers. They have the skills and knowledge to help you grow faster and replacing them will impact on your profit and make it less likely you will achieve your business objectives.
So you’ve got talented staff but how do you turn them into high performers
Attracting and retaining the best employees can be supported by selling and delivering better employee engagement strategy. Engage your employees more to help you achieve your business objectives with more certainty.
Recruitment strategies to attract and retain talent in UK
How do you attract the right employees to help you improve your business performance? Many employees are looking for an opportunity to help your business grow faster. To retain such employees you need to develop them to help develop your business.

Maximising business opportunities for growth
There is a yin and yang to all threats and opportunities.
Every threat comes with an opportunity to change for the better.
Every opportunity comes with a threat that the new will destroy existing value.
Business decision makers have tougher choices now than many recent business leaders have faced and many choices may threaten survival if you choose badly. Making good choices could also drive your business forward much faster than recently possible due to the financial crisis of 2008 and recovery therefrom.
