Remuneration 2022: Recent Industry Trends

Hosted by Parkwell Management Consultants and featuring data from Compeer’s latest remuneration survey, this seminar will provide a detailed summary of UK wealth industry salaries across key business functions. We will also be discussing the key HR and hiring challenges in a hybrid working world with a panel of industry leaders.

Compeer has run its remuneration survey of the UK wealth management industry twice yearly for over ten years and today it includes data from over 10,000 individuals, representing close to a third of the industry’s workforce. During the event we will share the latest trends arising from the survey.

We will also include insight into recruitment and HR challenges currently being faced by the sector. The world of work is now, perhaps irrevocably, blended with the world of home. With the ongoing challenge of achieving the right work/life balance, employee engagement and talent management are key subjects for business leaders.
