Abit of my background, I have stayed with this bank for more than 6 years, armed with local uni degree (hons) cert in Mathematics.

I started looking out for jobs recently as my pay has been quite stagnant since 2019.

After going for quite a few interviews, I settled for a 2-year contract offer from a foreign CIB as a KYC Analyst. They are giving me $5100. They told me that thisís a long term contract and after the contract has ended, many staff usually just renew the contract unless theyíre really CMI. It was even stated in the offer letter that ďAt the end of the contract, it will be renewable given the mutual agreement between the employer and the staff.Ē Notice period is 2 months if I want to resign.

Actually, that bank is my second choice as my aspiration is to join JPMC. However, the competition at JPMC is really stiff and I cannot even get past the first interview even when my friend had referred me for the role.

A few questions for the bros here,

1) Based on my description above, do you think that Iíve made a right choice in the move? From perm to contract.

2) Should I just settle for this bank and work hard to try to transfer to their perm position? Or should I just continue to try JPMC? Honestly, Iím really disheartened with JPMC even though Iíve put in so much effort to prepare for the interview and make use of all my connections to get the interview opportunity.

Right choice becoz of pay bump. Assume still higher if u had bonus at old place. But u lose whatever other benefits of perm. Actually why dwell on it since u canít go back in time?

If u really like jpm just continue trying when u have the chance lo. Is it mutually exclusive? And continue working hard at the same time at your current place. We all have goals but doesnít mean they will always come true

No one can predict the future with certainty, and how 'safe' your career is is down to you in the end as it is strongly based on personal performance.

Depends on what you are looking for in a role. Contracts are paid higher in general to compensate for the poor intangible benefits/bonus.

Not sure why like JPMC so much. KYC in banking has high volume and manual in general.

Have an open mind to explore your options. There is only so much a KYC analyst can earn.

With your years of experience, you should be looking at a more senior or managerial role.

Hi bro, thanks for your reply.

1) After reading this forum, it dawned upon me that I shouldnít do kyc for too long. Thus, Iíve signed up for some courses with ICA so that hopefully I can move to compliance advisory role in the near future.

2) Many people told me JPMC is the number 1 bank. If you can go into JPMC, your career future will be very bright and a fat pay cheque awaits you. I really hope that I can have a breakthrough in my career.

Thanks for sharing! This is pretty good considering the 2ish month bonus too (I would think this is rather rare)!

Are you part of a grad programme, or direct hire as an analyst after graduation? How is the promotion prospect like moving forward? Any potential pay increment in the near future, if so, how much do you reckon?

KYC (know your customer) is an essential element in the fight against financial crime and money laundering today. Customer identification is the most important aspect, as it's the first step to improving efficiency at other stages of the process.
The global anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing landscape raise huge stakes for financial institutions.
International rules, which are influenced by standards such as the Financial Events Working Group (FATF), are now applied in national laws, covering strict guidelines such as 4 and 5, and preventive measures such as "KYC" for customer identification.
