Sales & Trading Analyst 1 Compensation

Hello Everybody,

I'm joining an American Bank in the UK as an analyst 1 following my summer internship. Following the Brexit, many banks transferred their employees to Paris with some good compensations.

How much do you think should I expect in terms of full compensation in London as an analyst 1?

Does London have a future in the long run?

Also curious about this, especially bonus in the UK.

Depends somewhat on the shop, but is fairly well-aligned across the street (i.e. less variance than M&A).

That said, S&T grads are not getting the same bumps their allegedly "overworked" advisory peers are receiving (may well trickle through eventually, may not). 

A first year Analyst at a BB will likely get around £55k starting salary with a bonus of roughly £50k. 

If you outperform, however, there's less of a "top bucket" limit than you find in M&A: a peer of mine when I first starter was on the STIRT desk (short-term interest rate trading) and received a bonus of £120k

Base matches IB base at nearly all BBs. Refuse to believe that a S&T An1 is getting a 50k gbp bonus. IBD An1 wasn't even getting that at a BB in London till post-covid
