Rutherford Search Financial Crime Salary Survey 2021 Cover

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.

There are ample roles within the financial crime space from head of financial crime, to a financial crime lawyer, to financial crime analyst. Whether you're looking for new talent to join your team or are a professional seeking a role, have a look through our our salary survey, which highlights industry average compensation for financial crime professionals.
