Danos Associates publishes 2019 Salary Benchmark Report for UK Compliance Roles within Payments, Retail Financial Services and Retail Banking

Danos Associates have published a 2019 Salary Report for UK Compliance Roles. In this report, you will find industry salary breakdowns for:

  • Payments
  • Retails Financial Services
  • Retail Banking

The report also highlights some key insights, including:

  • Hiring across the Retail sector has been inconsistent across 2019. The new entries to the UK Retail sector include Online Banking, Challenger Banks and Payment Firms and these have created hiring volume, while the legacy areas have mainly focused on backfilling essential hires. Established firms are waiting on Brexit and Economic factors to settle down before moving back to hiring to support their expansion plans.
  • Salaries have continued to grow with the introduction of new Online and Payments technologies and products. The traditional firms must compete or risk losing the best talent.
  • The attractiveness of nonguaranteed Equity in start-ups is starting to fall, as most never fulfil their expectations. Candidates are looking for other incentives to guarantee income and cover the risk of joining.
