Got your millions in bailout bonuses and ran did you?

Singapore isn't a big fan of N.American style bonuses so you might be in for a rude awakening.

Trader Salary ?

Postby kman » Fri, 27 Mar 2009 12:48 pm

I will be starting work soon at an Indian Financial Services company which has just set up shop here in SG. Just wondering approximately what the average salaries should be for a junior trader (equities/commodities). I still have to negotiate my package and wanted to have a better idea of how much to expect.

You mean it only services Indians? Or it only deals in Indian commodities? If neither then why say it's an Indian company? Sorry, we don't have any track record of salary offerings during deep recessions. This is currently uncharted territory here.
