“In the pre-credit crunch days bonuses were talked about in many multiples of base pay – this year the expectations are for fractions of salary.”
This year’s bonuses will come on top of a 12 per cent increase in basic pay for Canary Wharf and City workers, according to the firm.
The survey polled 1,380 finance professionals between September and October.
