FINANCE & INSURANCE

Finance and Insurance

Spokane’s Finance and Insurance sector offers the highest average annual wages of the five Targeted Industries.

The sector’s recovery from the recession has been led by job growth in the Insurance Agencies and Brokerages, Credit Unions, and Medical Insurance Carriers subsectors.

As the regulatory environment continues to evolve in health insurance and financial activities, more jobs are expected to be created in order to manage the changing landscape. The increased property sales volume throughout the Spokane region, in both commercial and residential real estate, is also driving job growth within the Mortgage Loan subsector, which was hit hard during the nation-wide recession.
