Risk management professionals who become managing directors can do pretty well for themselves.

Compliance professionals are not immune to the onslaught of automation in banking, but a long-term upward trend in demand for middle-office professionals has meant that salaries have been on the up and up.

Risk and compliance professionals were able to secure significant pay increases when they changed jobs, according to the new salary survey from Robert Walters. This year, Robert Walters expects regulatory compliance to remain a priority for financial services firms based on or near Wall Street. Demand for accountants with a compliance or regulatory background will likely be strong in the U.S., and these professionals will be able to command competitive salaries, it suggests.

Banks were relatively active in hiring risk management and compliance professionals last year, and Robert Walters expects this to continue in 2017. The report cites financial services risk and compliance professionals with experience in digital media and technology as the likeliest candidates to be most in demand this year.

These are the best paying jobs in risk and compliance on Wall Street.
