UK / Europe - 2022 Bonuses

Alright UK / EU team, it's that time of the year again. Setting up this thread to get numbers and expectations across the street

Word on the street is that numbers will be high  -… 

Rumor has it that even HSBC will be paying 100% - quite an increase from their historical 20% - 40% range 

Please post your number, rank, role and type of bank (US BB, European BB, Large Cap Bank, EBs, Mid Market, Specialist / Boutiques etc.) 

I'll know mine in Feb. (Edit, if it's not at least 100% pro-rata, I'm out)

The big question is if A1/A2 will benefit from these increases or if it will only be directed for mid to high ranks

DRV, what's your opinion? Comment below:

$90k of which 25% deferred. Cash less than my full year stub from last year. Disappointed but maybe to be expected with being ranked mid/low.
