We have examined 2014/2013 salary and bonus data from 653 FICC Trading professionals working in UK.
Working in the different business areas within the FICC division requires different skills and expertise. Rates and credit are typically more complex products, with higher margins, and this may explain why remuneration is significantly higher. The FX market has also seen a shift to electronic trading in recent years which may help to explain the relatively lower salary and bonus figures.
