Those working in risk management jobs have been predicted to experience a faster increase in salary within the investment bank sector. It is forecast that those fulfilling risk management vacancies will experience a rise in salary at a quicker rate than even CEOs. A report revealed that the pressures of tighter regulations on information security have caused banks to offer greater remuneration to staff in key control positions.
According to the Mercer survey which questioned 63 financial organisations, employees in control positions such as legal, compliance, internal audit and risk management jobs can expect salary increases of at least 3 percent. On the other hand, chief executives can expect their base salary to remain static this year.

Model stress testing and risk analysis of counterparty is required within this sector, but although there are many candidates that have a surface knowledge of these processes, very few are experts.
For those looking to secure a successful career in risk management, developing skills in these areas will make them highly attractive to the financial sector.
