KYC (Onboarding/Periodic Reivew) roles in smaller banks are parked under compliance while in big banks it will be under middle office/business support. Any comments, anyone?

Thanks. I have been lucky to meet good colleagues, which has helped in the scouting of ideal opportunities. Can't share the bank names, will give my identity away pretty quickly. This space is rather small. I've been in American and European banks.

Started out in the KYC domain. Moved into Compliance, dealing with KYC/AML advisory.

KYC i.e. client due diligence, is generally an operational role which usually isn't parked under the Operations arm of most banks. Some banks park it under MO, a few banks park it under Compliance. End of the day, doesn't really matter. All that matters is which bonus pool the KYC team falls under.

Do you think you're an outlier/high flyer? I don't think most ppl's career in AML goes as smoothly as yours

Well yes, definitely I think I am one of the lucky ones. I know many of my previous colleagues who are still struggling. This is an overrated industry that somehow many think is attractive. But they dont know the reality.

Actually what do you doing in KYC/AML advisory?

For onboarding of clients, who are the ones who get the documents from clients? Client facing team, ops or compliance etc?
