Banking is integral to businesses, governments and the everyday lives of people. Bankers use analytical knowledge and skills to help customers find financial solutions. They may arrange finance for them at a personal level so they can start a new venture, or assist them with expanding an existing business.


The field of finance can take you anywhere in the world and to many careers. You can work in corporate finance for big business, for well-known financial institutions, or in financial markets in Australia and overseas.

Financial planners help people to make smart decisions with their money. They take time to understand each client’s goal and objectives. They formulate a financial plan, monitor progress and help their clients maintain a budget. If you enjoy working with people and want to help others progress financially, this could be the industry for you.
