That might be difficult as 2010 isn't over yet. :o

Carteki, see what I mean? I click you link and get a 404 Item not found! :P

Might want to recheck your link......

http://www.robertwalters.com.sg/resourc ... y_2010.pdf

Here's the correct link. You will need adobe reader as it's a pdf file. You will notice that heaps of 2010 upper ranges have dropped from 2009 (Like I said, 2010 isn't over yet!)

Cheers guys. Gives me a little guidance. What are the other headhunters that put out salary reports in Singapore?

Its difficult to gauge what the salary is because my desk is neither Treasury or Custody Sales.

When I asked my London HR, they wouldnt tell me explicitly and instead said it was 'competitive'. I dont want to request Asia start instead of London start if im going to sell myself down the river for a *significantly* lower wage, and whilst Singapore living is better than London, I want to have a decent enough salary to spend $2250SGD (£240/250pw) a month on rent, which is what i would spend in London anyway.
