Credit Suisse Junk Bonuses Turn Into $5B

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

All of you probably remember last year how Credit Suisse did something “unthinkable” by giving bonuses in the form of CDOs and ABS.  Now it seems that CS bankers were some of the most highly compensated during the recession!

Credit Suisse sign

Bankers’ ‘junk’ bonuses turn into $5bn

By Alex Ritson
Business reporter, BBC World Service

Bonuses made up of so-called toxic debt and given to bankers at Credit Suisse as a punishment for poor investments, have soared in value.

Their bonus pool, made up financial products originally thought to be worthless, is now worth $5bn (£3.2bn).

The bank lost $7bn last year, in part due to the investment decisions of some of its best-paid staff.

The toxic debt bonuses had been described as a way of giving the bankers to taste of their own medicine.

But it has now emerged the value of the toxic bonus pool has climbed by 72% – far outperforming many safer investments.

Well-deserved?

The money had been put into complicated financial products linked to the risky commercial debt secured on among other things, a Japanese shopping centre, an American supermarket chain and other commercial property that had plunged in value.

At the height of the financial crisis, many people thought these investments were worthless. To Credit Suisse, it seemed right to share them out as annual bonuses among the people who had apparently got things so wrong.

But as confidence has returned to the market – it has become clear that the toxic asset pool wasn’t nearly as toxic it had been thought.

The toxic bonus fund has soared in value by 72%. That compares with a 60% rise in the value of Credit Suisse shares over the same period – or a mere 19% rise in the main US share index the Dow Jones.

The bankers may well feel they have earned the money though.

Credit Suisse is safely back in profit – and unlike its rivals at UBS, Credit Suisse did not take a bail-out from the Swiss Government.

What is Proprietary Trading & Who are the Major Players?

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

Jane Street Logo


What is proprietary trading?

Proprietary trading firms are usually limited partnerships that put  their own capital to work in the markets, rather than the capital of their clients.  Some of these firms also function as market makers, or liquidity providers to the capital markets.  Prop trading firms are different than hedge funds, which generate returns based on their fund size and benchmark performance.  In terms of compensation, prop trading firms often pay a base salary and a very lucrative performance bonus.  Turnover, however, is rather high at these firms, since these firms do not often tolerate shoddy performance.  In addition, newer firms often require a contribution of capital from traders who wish to join, from about $10-20,000.  In return, these firms often offer substantial leverage and training.  Many times, the training is well worth the experience if it is given for free.  Aspiring traders though need to be wary of firms that charge excessively for training.
