New South Wales is Australia’s largest economy, one-third larger than its neighbour Victoria, with the city of Sydney alone responsible for generating a quarter of the nation’s GDP. NSW accounts for nearly half of Australia’s financial services industry, with the majority of commercial and corporate financial institutions situated in Sydney. Many Australian investment banks, merchant banks, insurance companies and wealth management funds are headquartered in Sydney. The bulk of foreign investment and trading in Australia also takes place in Sydney, with 81% of international finance and insurance corporations in the Asia Pacific region taking offices in New South Wales.
The amount of jobs available in financial services in New South Wales therefore is greater than anywhere else in the country. Sydney is also home to some of the best universities in Australia – UNSW and the University of Sydney.
