Place to be: regulatory compliance

eFC logo

Lest there are still any doubts that regulatory compliance is the place to work this year, the latest survey from PricewaterhouseCoopers and the CBI spells it out clearly: spending on regulatory compliance is booming.

The survey shows that a balance of 88% of banks expect to increase their spending on regulatory compliance in the next 12 months.

It also shows that a balance of 3% of general insurance firms (ie. not brokers or life insurers) expect to increase their headcount in the next three months.

Elsewhere, the picture remains very, very bleak. A balance of 43% of banks and 94% of securities traders expect to make headcount reductions in the next three months. According to The Times, another 15,000 financial services jobs are likely to go before March.
