The Malaysian finance technology (Fintech) market grew steadily over 2017 and we expect this growth to continue throughout 2018, driven by new technology innovations and regulatory change. The central bank, Bank Negara Malaysia, is working to raise the profile of FinTech amongst financial firms and insurers to improve the quality and efficiency of the country’s financial services sector. This push has created more job opportunities for candidates in the emerging technologies space including mobile and the web.

HAYS Salary Report 2018 on Financial Technology (Fintech) Jobs in Malaysia

Undoubtedly, the main trends of 2018 will be the increasing digitisation and automation of the financial services industry. We are already seeing increasing use of e-payments and direct channel distribution. Project Managers are needed in this space and we expect qualified candidates will be able to command higher salaries in 2018. Candidates with an IT security background are also in demand as cyber security is a high priority for all firms in 2018.

We expect more organisations to focus attention on strengthening their capability across threat prevention, risk management and information security. Meanwhile, detariffication in the insurance industry has seen many organisations restructure their teams to align with the changes. Demand for Project Managers and Business Analysts will remain high to help firms with compliance and business transformation projects.

We also predict growing demand for Data Analysts from insurers. Due to regulatory requirements, these candidates must be able to demonstrate they hold a customer-centric viewpoint. Data Scientists, Data Analysts, Data Modellers and big data related candidates are also expected to remain in strong demand over the coming year. With an increasing need for talent, the FinTech sector is trying to attract candidates from other fields.

However, a growing number of tech start-ups are vying for the same candidates, so we expect intense competition in 2018. Salary will be a major consideration for A number of companies this year, will look to recruit at least one in-house penetration tester to oversee local operations. This has traditionally been an outsourced role. However, given the shortage of candidates with practical experience in this area and who hold relevant certifications such as OSCP or GIAC GPEN, companies will be forced to either spend more on service providers or consider hiring from overseas. IT Audit candidates are also in short supply.

We are seeing companies compete for the same IT audit candidates and this is creating upward pressure on salaries, but also the need for employers to be more creative when recruiting. For example, some companies are considering candidates from an IT risk or IT security background with transferable skills to fill IT Audit roles. Where hiring managers are not prepared to be flexible, it can take six months to a year to fill an IT audit role.

During 2017, we saw financial institutions hire more junior staff due to the introduction of new regulations in the sector. This was also due to the amount of senior staff hires in 2016. While senior staff-level headcount remains generally stable, we have seen commercial institutions on the hunt for more team leaders to develop their security and risk functions and this will continue in 2018.
