Debt/Equity Brokerage Compensation

Hi All,  I am currently recruiting for analyst roles in major NorthEast market (you can probably guess) ... I am trying to get an accurate gauge on what is market compensation for analyst roles on brokerage teams in debt/equity.  I've heard a wide range, so I figured I'd post here and see if anyone has some real, relevant info.

Thank you!

I'm in NYC (taking a wild guess where OP is.....), not with D/E, but would say that "market" comp for analyst probably starts a minimums of 60-65K base for UG, and 75-85K base for grad (in general institutional real estate shops, which I think the D/E shops would compete for talent). Bonus is far more wide ranging, low end 10-20%, high end 50%+. 

I'd guess with a D/E shop there would be some trade off between base and bonus/fee split potential (i.e. higher base, lower bonus/fee split potential). That said, given the hours and work expectations of an analyst in major D/E shop, I'd suspect you should have a pretty clear/direct path to all in comp north of $100k at minimum (contingent on team closing deals of course). Really be shocked if you made less on a legit team.

I can confirm the following role for the Southeast:

Firm: CBRE,Cushman, Newmark, JLL

Position: Analyst

Location: Southeast

Pay: $70K plus bonus (around 10-15%)

I'm actually very surprised there is not a significant pay difference from Northeast and Southeast.

Yes, good analysts on good teams (also in top markets) should easily crack $100k a year, even during a year like COVID. When I was in debt placement, lowest year was at $130k.

Your analyst gets max $85k all in being generous while that first comment gets about $165k all in. That's a very large pay difference, almost double.
