Bonuses are relatively small...: Bonuses only account for a 28% total income as a maximum, compared to 42% for an Associate, and more than 50% for most many MDs.


The Analyst exception: With policies of paying higher salaries at analyst level, European banks challenge American institutions for the top spots with paychecks at UBS and Deutsche Bank matching Goldman's and Morgan Stanley's.


Easy enough to move up the ranks. Competing for talent at Analyst level is cheap: the narrow £1,000 gap between Morgan Stanley (1st) and Credit Suisse (5th) shows that by increasing pay by just £2,000-£3,000, banks could easily climb up the rankings.
