In the financial industry, what are the benefits of knowing more industry professionals?
When working in the same industry, do we need to act like we are each other’s opponent country? Does working in the same industry mean that we are in a competitive relationship? In fact, it is not only the financial industry, but in most industries, knowing more friends in the same industry definitely has more advantages than disadvantages. For instance, if a restaurant owner knows a lot of people within the restaurant industry, he may be able to seek for support when materials or seasonings are in shortage; designers might be able to create new sparkling ideas with the other designers they know. Then why is it crucial to know more professionals within the financial industry?
The world of the financial industry, sometimes making friends is really important. If you know more friends in the industry, you can consult them on compliance, operations, company operations, filling reports, on-site inspections, and answering questions from the Securities and Futures Commission. By pooling everyone’s experience, everyone will be able to face and conquer the challenges that are brought by the Securities and Futures Commission. In addition, a wide network can bring more business/cooperation opportunities. Distant relatives are not as good as neighbors. I believe that being social can bring more benefits for anyone’s career.
In addition to work, you can get more information in the industry by communicating with colleagues after a meal. As a human, time, social circle and experience are limited. Talking with people from different social circles can broaden your horizon. Moreover, as long as the documents and guidelines of SFC are always ambiguous, you may save a lot of time by simply listening to other professionals’ experiences, thus allowing you to deal with SFC in a more handy manner.
In addition, if you are unfairly treated by your company in the future or if you want to change to a new environment and try new things; you will have more choices and more job opportunities to consider when you change jobs. Some companies only consider referrals by colleagues or friends. At this time, knowing people is better than being literate. Nowadays, networking holds a greater importance than academic qualifications.
