Compliance and AML/CDD are separate departments, one has legally trained officers and a head of dept who is a lawyer by profession, and the other is helmed by aunties who just spent a long time there. Quite obvious to see where the money is.

Unregistered Pretty sure a BB is better than a local bank in terms of salary, brand name and progression.

lol you're obviously not in the compliance field. just do a job search for compliance officer and you will see the job scope ranges from liaising with regulators to drafting of AML/KYC policies. position titles may differ in companies. i've seen companies having preference for head of compliance to have a law degree, however it is also common for people who have worked in MAS to be recruited due to their understanding of regulations and dealings with regulators. being a lawyer is not a must.

i have a friend who is now heading the compliance department for a fintech company and his kah kias, in your term the "junior compliance officers", are not required to be legal trained and did AML/CDD in their previous roles.

Not sure many banks, definitely not the BBs, refer to "junior compliance officer" as a specific job scope like you mentioned wrt to working "under qualified legal counsels", etc. Shouldn't they be under Legal team instead??? In most banks, junior doesn't really mean anything and compliance could refer to a multitude of roles as mentioned by the poster above (not just AML KYC)

AML, KYC all these saikang are usually outsourced to another dept under a different head (typically lower earning, with an ops background instead of legally trained).

That is what I mean when I say junior compliance role vs AML/KYC lackey.
