Which banks paid the biggest bonuses in 2015?


America leads: Once again, American banks head the bonus charts with Goldman Sachs paying bonuses up to 50,000 above leading European banks


But don't just look at bonuses figures : While Goldman Sachs paid the largest bonuses, JP Morgan are the most generous when it comes to overall compensation (base salary + bonus)


Top bonuses usually come with top salaries : in most cases, banks that give the biggest bonuses are also the ones offering best salaries to their bankers.
