Commentary on Risk Management Roles and Remuneration in Tokyo for 2018

There was little change in risk management recruitment within financial services from 2016. The busiest area was credit risk at the junior level, with very few roles in market or operational risk, other than at Japanese organisations.

An area that continues to grow at Japanese-headquartered institutions is liquidity risk, which sometimes falls within the treasury department. These organisations have also been looking for candidates with strong quantitative, development and project management skills to contribute to the strengthening of risk infrastructure across the organisation.

We have also seen demand for similar profiles from vendor companies who work within financial institutions who do not have the capacity to develop their own infrastructure. Regulations related to MiFID II and collateral management have helped to accelerate this growth.

Risk professionals can no longer assume that they will receive large increases in salaries when joining a new organisation, but professionals with strong academic and professional faculties, strong development and project management skills, or experience dealing with regulators can expect a premium.
