Financial Services Industry in Adelaide??

    Recommended Posts

    Hi,

     

    I'm using my girlfriend Emma's login to post this thread, but basically we're in the early stages of applying for residency in SA. I'm working in a financial accounting role for an alternative asset management firm in London, having previously come from background within Asset Management at Deutsche Bank. I've been looking online for various recruitment agencies that specialise in my field of work, but cannot seem to find any, and whats more is I can't actually find any traces of such industry (investment banking; financial services; hedge funds; asset management) ever existing in Adelaide (Sydney/Melbourne/Perth seem to have plenty)?!

     

    Can anyone help with some info on this, or even just some links to check out?

     

    Regards,

    Dij

    My friends husband has just started his own Hedge Fund, I'll ask what opportunites/companies you could be looking at.

     

    OK?

    Not sure if there are many investment banks in Adelaide at all. Be aware of one thing though, I notice you are applying for a sponsored visa. I have previous experience in banking (although only retail) but most banks will not employ people on a temporary visa. (something about lending so you might be OK) but please check this out as I would hate for you not to be aware of this before you arrive.

     

    Can you get another 5 points by taking the IELTS test for English Language? That may get you up to the 120 points?

     

    Hope this helps

    Thanks everyone for replying, appreciate the helpful tips... seems to be a few things I'd find useful on the Seek webpage. I am already taking the IELTS test sometime in march, but I think because of my qualification note validating the full 60 points, I fall just short (115) of the permanant visa. :(

     

    Also Richjop, that I'd very much appreciate if you could relay my interests to your husbands friend, and see what he thinks about perhaps getting in touch about his hedgefund business... I'd be very keen to chat.

     

    Anyone else with any further info, please dont hesitate to post a quick blog.

     

    Ciao
