The Month Bonuses are Paid, by said bank


Looking to get some clarity going on the specific month that bonuses are paid out by the specified bank you/friend/contact is at. Feel free to pm or post anonymously and I'll include it here on the list. Not looking for bonuses of "most" or "typical" banks that would pay in a month or month range. I'm looking to get a thread going on as many relevant banks BB/EB/MM as possible to see when each individual bank pays out their year-end bonus.

does that mean that the analysts can't/don't leave for the buyside before August?

DB did the same. A lot of banks are now paying Analysts in July so that when they leave there is a minimal gap in time until the new class of analysts arrives.

RBC - mid December for anyone who's not an analyst (analysts in July).  Mid December is the norm for Canadian banks, but RBC US has conformed to this (I guess to avoid the rumour-mill front running).
