Financial Services
Compensation Report

In the financial services industry, the challenge of recruiting, retaining and engaging employees has never been greater. As competition for people and skills intensifies — in all parts of the world — there’s corresponding pressure to ensure that your company’s pay programs are effectively meeting these critical workforce needs.

That, in turn, demands reliable, relevant and timely data to determine the right pay levels and mix for a workforce that spans regions and countries.

In a sector with higher salaries and unique forms of compensation, private equity firms are under intense pressure to ensure pay for employees is exactly right. To complement our Financial Services survey, our Private Equity surveys provides reliable and high-quality data around the world covering key elements of compensation, carried interest and co-investment plan design, and pay practices and benefits information.

Built on our experience in serving the data and consulting needs of this sector for more than 35 years, our Financial Services Compensation Surveys are global, with consistent content and formats — providing both multinational and local companies with a common way to analyze data across borders and industry sectors.
