Bright Outlook for Banks in 2021 Drives Fierce Competition for Talent

2020 was an introspective and reactive time for banks, but 2021 has brought back confidence and excitement in the industry. “Merger mania” is beginning to take hold and is likely to accelerate in the coming months, spurred by a need to scale as well as a lack of a management succession strategy. Asset quality is much improved across the board and deposit growth has been exceedingly strong. The outlook is very encouraging, particularly for loan growth, given expectations for meaningful improvement in the economy in the second half of the year. 

None of this excitement or success is achievable without the right workforce. At Travillian, we have seen a significant uptick in competition for talent across the board, particularly for C-Level execs, technologists, technology strategists and compliance professionals.

In 2020 and 2021, we committed to deepening our experience, expertise and team to better serve our clients. In doing so, The Travillian Group has established itself as a leader in the Banking and FinTech space for recruitment and talent advisory services. We would like to thank all of our clients for putting their trust in our firm.​
