In the 2014-15 Budget, the Financial Secretary tasked Financial Services and the Treasury Bureau ("FSTB") to conduct a study on the training of professionals and skilled personnel in various sectors of the financial services industry.  Through consultation with the financial services industry on the issue of talent training, it is noted that manpower shortage in middle- and back-offices is particularly acute in the insurance sector.
 
In this connection, FSTB has launched a three-year Pilot Programme to Enhance Talent Training for the Insurance Sector ("Insurance Pilot Programme") from 2016 to 2019 targeting at the public, students and existing in-service practitioners, with a view to attracting new blood and enhancing the professional competency and knowledge of the sector.
