These include roles that support the change and project work that is underpinning the banks’ transformations.

Asset managers invested heavily in risk as they sought to comply with Solvency II and the US Dodd-Frank Act, along with other regulations affecting the industry. Meanwhile, new teams were created to manage large-scale change through businesses.
