What is your qualification, perm or contract?

What is your daily role about?

This is not me. You can ignore these statements.

I am definitely not a high flyer. I have a degree in Banking & Finance from an Aussie uni but no honors or masters, not a dean lister etc. No professional qualifications yet as well, but am in the midst of studying for CAMS.

To be honest, it really goes down to finding the right time and opportunity to jump, and jump often. If I have to point out my strongest skillset, I have to say it's my interviewing skills more than anything technical or work related.

Actually what do you doing in KYC/AML advisory?

Being the point of contact in the Compliance team for the Due Diligence team as well as Business, on all issues related to KYC and AML.

They usually present complex situations, and my job is to analyst, dissect and ask the right questions, pointing them in the right direction and prescribing a risk based approach to take for the situation.

In a nutshell, the bulk of what my team does.

The bulk of my ex colleagues from the KYC domain are still within the KYC space, in one form or another. Most of them have risen up to senior analyst or assoc roles, though we don't really talk about those kinda stuff when we meet up. Sensitive.

Differs from bank to bank. Some banks have dedicated client management teams that deal exclusively with the acquisition of documentation (KYC, legal, credit etc.) from the client. Some banks put the responsibility on the KYC operational team to get these documents from the client.

I have never heard of Compliance personnel being tasked for such matters. Pretty sure it's a clash in mandate. Compliance is strictly internal and not supposed to be client facing in any form.

Agree..technical skills can be trained.

Why is there a clash in mandate for compliance?
