As we enter the fourth quarter and come closer to bonus time, it seems the people who are leaving banking jobs are either very senior or moderately junior (think associate-level).
The UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) Register shows who's coming and going from registered positions at top banks in the City of London. Unfortunately, it doesn't indicate whether those people are leaving of their own volition or as a result of cost cutting measures. In general, people quitting banks voluntarily this close to bonuses expect to be compensated for their loss of income. From this we deduce that while some people may have found better jobs elsewhere, not everyone below will have left of their own accord.
