As part of our on-going commitment to sharing meaningful insight into the employment market this newsletter highlights skills in demand, salary trends and expectations for the compliance function in 2013. Covering the investment banking, retail banking, investment management, insurance and financial crime sectors we hope you find it both informative and insightful.

Retail banking

Retail banking is a rapidly changing industry from a compliance point of view. Banks have grown and restructured their compliance divisions in response to the Financial Services Authority’s regulatory initiatives. Meanwhile, they are preparing for the FSA to split into two organisations this year – the Prudential Regulation Authority and the Financial Conduct Authority. Going forward, banks will have to report to the two separate entities (meaning different reporting skills will be required) and they are expecting these regulators to take a more intrusive approach than that used by the FSA.

Nevertheless, it still needs to navigate an increasingly sophisticated regulatory landscape that is marked by a number of European directives relating to portfolio management including the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID), the Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities (UCITS) directive and the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD).
