Just wanted to ask about the no. of years experience needed to "climb the ladder". Any input will be much appreciated. Below is my rough guess (not in banks currently)

Analyst = 0-1 years exp
Senior analyst = 2-3 years exp
Associate / asst mgr = 4-5 years exp
Senior associate / mgr / jr AVP = 6-7 years exp
AVP / jr VP = 8-9 years exp
VP = 10+ years exp

Also, does one usually go up the next grade by jumping banks or staying put?

Since we are on this topic, can anyone share the route of an compliance officer (role-wise) based on the same format:

Analyst =
Senior analyst =
Associate / asst mgr =
Senior associate / mgr / jr AVP =
AVP / jr VP =
VP =

Starting corporate title for HSBC (deg holders,freshies) - Asst mgr. Ultimately, it all comes down to the pay package and responsibilities. In my dept there are analysts drawing 5ish (with about 4yrs xp) but the things their doing are diff from the typical "analyst" work..

Is there a progression "plan" for the analysts in your department (drawing 5ish ones) or its gonna be status quo for the foreseeable future?

the associates are drawing about the same as those "analyst" who r drawing in the 5s range. And the progression plan is slightly different for them as they r double hatting different job roles. That is - they actually have another reporting line or also known as another boss in other dept to report to (related to the technology side). Which means their appraisals will be done by 2 different bosses (my dept and the other dept).

But i guess they are okay with the current status quo (only 2 of them in total) , the managers really give them a lot of freedom. Our work hours r really flexible plus all the perks they get, i doubt they'll be moving any time soon

How is the day - to - day life of a kyc due diligence ops analyst like?
And how do people get into the job in the first place?

mainly you would be handling account openings by RMs. Every quarter/month there would be samples picked for periodic reviews. Other ad-hoc duties will include answering compliance queries by front office people and clearing alerts generated by system.

people get in via different routes. Some join straight after graduating in perm roles (previously had intership done with compliance dept). Others join as contract staff assisting in kyc/aml procedures (eg. background checks) before getting converted. The rest join from different functions like ops, risk mgmt, IA or even external audit.

hope it helps
