London - Zurich Asset management bonuses

At all levels of seniority, Zurich compares more favourably than London

The pay gap is especially surprising at junior Analyst level with a 41% differential, thereafter narrowing down to 8% and 7% at VP and MD levels respectively.

Zurich base salaries far outperform London

As much as 50% higher in Zurich at Associate level and 27% for top executives, it's more an abyss than a gap. So if you are weighing up the options, Zurich as a junior banker definitely seems the most rewarding bet.

... But if it's a bonus you are after, think again!

At VP level, bonuses are 50% higher in London and still 36% higher when professionals reach Director level. So while Zurich has a safer and more reliable pay structure, if you trust in your performance, go and find better rewards in London!
