Today is the day of the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Financial Services Conference. Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley and Bank of America all made presentations. From these, we conclude the following:

1) People stay at Goldman for an average of 5 years and the average tenure is increasing (see below, click to expand).

2) That GDP growth has a multiplier effect for banking revenues and this is larger in Asia (for Goldman Sachs), suggesting this is where the hiring will be (see below).
