If you're someone with a bent for working in Swiss banking and you want to earn marginally more than your rivals, it's a little more clear which big Swiss institution you should go for. According to Reuters, CS investment banking bonuses are down there merest 60%, while the FT's Lex column says UBS payouts are down 95%. As ever, we have run the average compensation calculations hated loved by so many readers and established that the average Credit Suisse banker, now on CHF364k (219k), is earning 28% more than his or her average colleagues at UBS. UBS is, however, promising to pay its bankers a bit more next year and managing directors at CS are getting absolutely no unrestricted cash. It's a difficult call to make.
