Where will it all end at UBS? The Swiss bank's share price fell sharply this morning (but has since recovered slightly) after it emerged at the weekend that another 8,000 jobs are likely to be cut and another $2bn of illiquid assets written down. 5,000 of the job cuts are likely to fall in Switzerland, at the private bank. Where the remaining 3,000 persons will be eliminated is unclear. Separately, and in what ought to be more cheering news, Bank of America is apparently contemplating a 70% increase in the salaries it pays its investment bankers. However, it says their total comp will stay the same.
