i think both are equally the same.. but TM is more operational.. just get in, clock the base years of experience.. preferably CDD KYC role as it is not as operational.. CV easily marketable to foreign banks aft a few years.

any tips on how to make an effective transition?

lawyers are highly valued.. you're definitely able to transition over to compliance.. recommend that you apply for banks which have Legal and Compliance under one department.. then, your next move naturally should be to a Compliance specific department..

cheers bud!

I am currently working as a KYC analyst with an investment bank.
Now I have an opportunity to join JPMC as contract KYC analyst. Anyone can advise if that is a good move? 6 month contract with chance to convert.

perhaps im missing the strong pull factor.

but why is JPMC the top choice for students? and from what i see, the person is being offered a contract role vs his current permanent role.. lesser AL, no bonus (unless completion bonus), short term contract (6 months)

unless u are being compensated adequately or offered strong chances of conversion, please consider carefully before jumping!

The conversion rate is high along with good increment from the conversion and JPM has a strong emphasis on mobility. Opportunity is aplenty within the big organisation and people there are generally smart to work with. I think it is more sensible to land a job with a prestigious organisation than be thinking of bonus or AL in current economic climate whereby there are a pool of retrenched employee and fresh graduate in the job market.
Just google and you can find out why is JPM a top choice of employer for students entering the finance industry

Could I just check with you guys jobs of what titles are more receptive to candidates with IRAS or police experience?

Thank you!

Offer rate : 10% increment - I find this personally too Low compared to the risk I am taking converting from perm to contract. I am looking at 20%
Location : Changi business park

The pull factor here is - KYC private banking experience. High chance of conversion.
The main realm why I want to move is current bank has poor job scope ( date entry) and poor culture / boss.
