eFinancialCareers Ideal Employer Rankings 2016

eFinancialCareers Ideal Employer

Welcome to the 2016 eFinancialCareers Ideal Employer rankings for US and Global finance professionals.

The rankings track the employers financial services professionals want to work for and most admire. This annual study goes beyond the surface and explores the professional, demographic and attitudinal nuances that determine who someone considers their Ideal Employer. The research was conducted between October and December 2015 and included responses from over 6,500 finance professionals globally, across more than 30 countries.

More granular rankings and analysis will be published throughout February and March. Ideal employer rankings will be released for company type (including Bank, Asset Manager and Hedge Fund), Gender, Years of Experience, and Job Role (including Capital Markets, Operations and Risk Management).
