Yes. KYC is a general compliance route and is highly diversified into other area of compliance. Have friends going into advisory, sanctions or compliance control after 2,3 years so i think its possible. I am in the industry and KYC is highly sought after now since i am always getting calls for recruiters offering me 20-30% increment. Like my current work place so i did not take up those offers. I would say KYC is a good first step into compliance advisory but hard work is required.

Heard from my frenz working in DB that they are ramping up compliance department and have been paying top dollars and bonuses to get the right people. So i suppose conversion of all 33 headcounts into perm after 2 yrs is def possible. AML would also continue to be a main focus for the industry

Your 20-30% is for which role they offer u?KYC in another bank?

FYI, KYC is not compliance, but ops which can be done by cheaper FT. But a lot of KYC ppl like to put on resume and linkedin that they are in compliance, which is just consoling themselves that they are in compliance, which i believe u r one of them.

Secondly, so many KYC ppl in the market, very difficult to climb into compliance. Those who stay in KYC at most can be Team lead of KYC.


The real compliance is advisory and regulations and AML risk assessment.

So get your facts right about KYC and compliance.

Yes, they have been sending me updates. Did you ask what will happen after 2 years?
They said all of us will be converted if possible but how can the bank have so many headcounts?

I got a email stating that they have selected me to be put forward as part of the suggested Anti-Financial Crime Team.

However, the process from here is to discuss this with DB, who will look to meet with a few of the team before training begins.
