UBS is raising salaries for investment bank analysts, associates, and directors. We have all the details for each level.


A day after German lender Deutsche Bank announced it would raise salaries for junior investment bankers, Swiss bank UBS is following suit.

The bank is raising salaries for analysts, associates, and directors within its investment bank, two people familiar with the matter told Insider on Wednesday.

The raises are effective August 1, according to one person familiar with the comp bump. And analysts, associates, and directors across all regions are eligible for the raise, according to another person familiar with the matter. 

Previously, UBS offered a one-time $40,000 bonus to investment bankers promoted to the associate level, Bloomberg reported in May.

On Tuesday, UBS beat research analysts estimates for its second-quarter earnings.
