A survey of 1,500 financial services firms by financial technology firm FinTech Insider shows that the number of financial services jobs has continued to increase in recent years.
In the survey, the number was up more than 30 percent from a year ago.
In 2015, about 12.2 percent of financial service jobs were vacant.
The number of vacant financial services positions has increased nearly 18 percent over the past four years.
The financial services industry has grown at a faster pace than the rest of the economy.
The financial services sector grew at a rate of nearly 7 percent in 2016, according to a report by financial services company Accenture.
But the sector is still behind the growth of the overall economy, which grew at 3.9 percent in the same year.
FinTech Insider also found that the industry is more diversified than it has been in years.
Nearly 10 percent of the total financial services workforce is now non-financial, while just 2.5 percent of those surveyed are in the financial services space, according a FinTech report.
The industry also has a greater proportion of women in it than in previous years.
FinTechInsider also found some good news for the industry.
The average salary of the top 25 percent of finance workers was $80,000 in 2016.
But that number fell to $61,000 last year, according the report.
The report also found a strong correlation between the financial sector and job growth in some industries.
The report found that more than 40 percent of top financial services workers have at least one job in the sector.
In some sectors, the jobs are not directly related to the financial business.
FinTechInsiders found that some of the most popular financial services careers are in insurance, investment banking, securities, commodities trading, derivatives, insurance, and financial advisory.
