So far what I see is kyc analyst is mainly doing client on boarding, process documents etc
How about kyc analyst for remediation project? Is there a difference between a kyc analyst in corporate banking and other areas??

I'm rather confused and there isn't any clear information provided...

There's a difference... but usually companies call onboarding roles as AML/KYC in general because it's part of the AML process when u onboard a new client.

AML analysts are usually your transaction monitoring/reviews guys, AML officers are usually those who provide advisory or file suspicious reports.

KYC remediation, as the name suggests, refers to redoing/refreshing KYCs... Usually there are contract roles and u will be kick out after the project ends.

KYC for corporate and private banking is very different. They types of documents required and the level of depth differs greatly. Corporates you need to identify the directors who are empowered to operate the accounts, while private banking u need to dig deeper (i.e. trust structures)... identify their source of wealth etc etc.

sorry bro... it has gotta be connections or internal transfers who will most likely give you a shot at an interview

Just wondering, what is the average pay for a team lead with the responsibility of leading and expanding the team including interviewing/hiring new members? (leading around 5-8 member of staff)

I was offered at 4.5k sgd a couple of weeks ago from a very large MNC and I felt that the pay was way too low for the industry average.

What's your thought about this?

I heard one of my friend got 5k and above for experienced kyc analyst position.

Anyway the figures below are based on my own experience:
Analyst/Officer/Associate 40k-60k
AVP 60k-120k
VP 120k-180k
D 180k-240k
MD 240k+

For an average performer, how many years to move on the ranks?
Maybe how much to expect at 5 year mark? 10 year mark?

Bonus included?

Wanna know if a job in KYC ( e.g. kyc analyst ) or Compliance (e.g. Compliance AM ), which has better prospect?

Seems that KYC is also in compliance, just that it is more specialized.
