An abbreviation for financial talent, refers to an aptitude for the skill set typically desirable in the financial industry, typically involving financial, technology and subject matter areas of expertise. The term was born during recent trends in the financial industry, but even before the Digital Revolution, changing technology had placed new importance on certain skill sets. In the wake of automation, the well-documented transformation of the financial sector away from manual processes and towards technology and data-driven processes caused an absence of these skills to rise to prominence. The emphasis on financial talent was born from a wider trend in Human Resources that also popularized the concept of Talent Management.
