Have European Junior Bankers Compensation Increased like in the US ?

It has been well reported in the financial press that NYC 1st year IB analysts saw their base pay increase from $85k to $100k-$120k depending on the bank: https://archive.is/NdIuD

Have other offices outside the US experienced similar pay bump ? Or is London IB 1st year base still £50k ?

American incoming BB analyst here. Honestly it's bullshit that london bankers don't receive same comp. Most BB's are now £60k base? That's $82k lower than the old NYC base before raises… wtf
