Financial Hiring Trends Research Library

Options Group has been publishing annual compensation reports since 2004. In 2013, we began publishing buy-side-specific annual reports to address the unique needs of our buy side clients. Reports in our research library are released in November/December and they provide compensation forecasts and benchmarks. Each report contains thousands of compensation data points across the largest financial regions from managing director to associate for common roles ranging from sales and trading to investment banking, wealth, management, and technology.


The reports offer in‐depth analysis of hiring trends and the competitive landscape within key geographical regions, as well as compensation projections by asset class and product category and key people moves.
