Wall Street bonuses to rise 40%

Posted by invizweb on November 8, 2009

I thank Klint Finley for originally posting this on his site here.

The following was posted on MSN MoneyThe federal government has systematically begun to control bank pay packages. The Treasury “pay czar” is effectively controlling compensation at companies which still owe TARP money. The Fed is pressuring other large financial firms to tie pay to risk.

None of those efforts seems to be working well, because bankers are ignoring the signals from Washington.

A new compensation survey described in The Wall Street Journal predicts that Wall Street incentive pay will rise 40% this year. For those in the fixed-income part of the industry, the increase could be closer to 60%.

Good grief.  Some people never learn…
