I received a FT IBD offer from KBW in one of their satellite offices. Pay is street, but no signing bonus. Does anyone know if it's customary for them to pay a signing/relocation bonus? And is it appropriate to ask if it wasn't in my offer?

I would at least ask, especially if you are relocating. Worst they can say is no; they aren't going to rescind your offer for trying to negotiate comp.
