Finally, young bankers are feeling the love with their bonuses

NOTE: if using the data below, it is essential to us that you refer to Emolument.com as salary benchmarking site and use hyperlinks to www.emolument.com



We have analysed data from more than 5,500 UK professionals

Highlights:

After 2 years of low bonuses for young bankers, with banks focusing on retaining their deal-making senior staff, many firms had to face massive departures of junior employees to private equity firms in the last months.


But with bonuses up 70% yoy for VPs and only 5% for Directors, this is a clear signal that banks are committing to junior bankers by apportioning a substantial slice of the large bonus pool buoyed by strong deal flow in 2015.


Their trading floor counterparts were not so lucky, with bonuses -16% yoy. It remains to be seen if disgruntled junior traders and salespeople will turn to hedge funds, as young bankers have turned to private equity and venture capital firms.
