COMMONLY associated with a male-dominated culture, a recent survey conducted by finance job site eFinanceCareers has revealed otherwise about Singapore's finance sector.

Conducted between July and August 2014 on about 5,000 global respondents (polling a total of 1,244 finance professionals living and working in Singapore), the diversity and discrimination survey revealed that Singapore's financial services sector has the most female-friendly place to work in.

Singapore respondents, with 87 per cent saying yes, emerged top when asked if they would recommend their company to a female friend. They were followed closely by Australia with 83 per cent, the UK and the US with 82 per cent each, Hong Kong with a lower score of 77 per cent and the Middle East with only 66 per cent.
