The Select methodology for setting up and operating in new countries has always and will continue to be based on maximum local participation, supported by training and mentoring from the Group’s associated offices and established companies. Generally a short-term expatriate business development manager is used to facilitate the speedy training of local staff. Once this is achieved, responsibility for running the operation is handed over to a local management team.
Rapid Training and Development: The Select business model has been structured in such a manner as to maximise the rapid training and development of local staff.
Local management skills are further enhanced through participation in local Executive Committees. Employees are encouraged to advance their training and education in financial services and to this end, Select provides allowances to support these programmes.
Local Shareholding: In terms of opening branches in new countries, Select is always open to local shareholding as may be required in each country.
