Rutherford Search Financial Crime Salary Survey 2021

Over the last year, combating and preventing financial crime has become a top priority within the financial services industry. Market abuse and financial misconduct increased during the global pandemic, namely due to the rise in digital transactions, the operational difficulties of remote working, and global economic volatility. These combined factors allowed criminals to exploit gaps in controls and made monitoring unusual activity particularly challenging. As such, despite a notable lack of hiring across the financial services industry last year, financial crime professionals have remained in steady demand.
