That’s creating a recruiting challenge in the financial-services industry, according to Federal Reserve Bank of New York President William Dudley. The fallout from banking scandals in the wake of the 2007-2008 financial crisis has dimmed the allure of the industry in some quarters, he said, citing meetings with business-school deans.

That’s not a good cycle. If the most ethical people coming out of the business schools decide that they’re not going to go into this industry, that means there’s quite a bit more work to do.”
