Banker Bonus expectations surge in Asia



Posted by Ed 5 mths ago
Equity capital markets (ECM) bankers at CITIC Securities and China Securities were the most successful dealmakers in their field in Asia for 2017 – but now the tables have turned. Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley have displaced the two Chinese firms to top Dealogic’s 2018 ranking for Asia (ex-Japan) ECM revenue, and bonus expectations are rising as a result.

American banks (Goldman, MS, JP Morgan and Citi) make up four of the top-seven firms in Dealogic’s new list. On the back of this performance, bankers at US firms look likely to land the largest bonuses within Asian ECM. “US banks in Hong Kong will pay more than the Europeans as they’ve generally completed more deals this year,” says Stanley Soh, a Hong Kong-based regional country director of financial services solutions in Asia.
