The future of risk and compliance in Hong Kong and roles in demand

As one of the world’s leading financial centres, demand for risk management and compliance is high on the agenda of many Hong Kong companies, driven by four key factors:

  • Digital transformation: The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated digital transformation, particularly among financial institutions. A strong compliance team that can adapt quickly is critical to ensure companies continue to make the most of evolving technologies while managing regulatory requirements in Hong Kong.
  • The rise of virtual banking: Hong Kong has embraced the entrance of virtual banks to the market, but with this comes the need to manage tightening regulations especially around risk management and data protection. This underpins the need for experienced risk and compliance talent who can readily adapt to change and navigate emerging technologies.
  • Continued action by regulatory authorities: Hong Kong’s Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) is committed to minimising crime and misconduct in the securities and futures markets1, whilst also introducing new regulations to enhance transparency. In this fast-moving environment, a strong risk and compliance team is essential to ensure organisations continue to meet regulatory guidelines.
  • Tight labour market for skilled candidates: In the field of risk specialisation, Hong Kong is facing a tight supply of candidates. The supply of junior talent outweighs against more senior candidates, and companies in Hong Kong are seeking professionals with high proficiency in IT, particularly coding skills in Python, VBA, and R.
