PwC: Financial Services could create over 250,000 new UK jobs ** (Jul. 22, 2013, London, /hereisthecity.com/) A recovering Financial Services sector bodes well for the overall state of the UK economy and job market. An efficiently- run and impactful financial services sector could create 265,000 new jobs whilst raising gross domestic product by 2-3% in the UK by 2020, according to a report conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC) published Monday. Economists at PwC based their research on two contrasting scenarios: The first, which focuses on a sustainable environment with well-regulated growth, sees the manufacturing , retail and insurance industries all open up their job markets with the creation of 45,900, 41,600 and 22,300 new positions. A gloomier outlook is forecast in the second scenario, however, one that is based on a frail economy - both at home and internationally - and set against a regulatory backdrop that does little to encourage growth. Should the financial services industry perpetually languish, then PwC claim gross GDP would rise by a paltry 0.2% creating just 12,000 jobs.
