If you’re weighting up whether to move to a new investment banking job in Hong Kong this year, chances are that JP Morgan will be high on your list of potential employers. That’s not just because the firm has a prestigious global brand name – JPM is also performing well in Asia. The US bank topped Dealogic’s table for APAC (international and ex-Japan) IB revenue by bank in the first quarter of 2019.
But what should you expect to earn if you join JP Morgan in Hong Kong as an investment banker? To find out about JP Morgan’s Hong Kong salaries and bonuses, we examined employee compensation from Glassdoor. We then produced the table below, which displays approximate JP Morgan base salaries and cash bonuses across the four broad seniority levels that the website has sufficient data for in Hong Kong.
We only included high-range salaries in the table, because they reflect the earnings of front-office investment bankers. JP Morgan did not respond to a request to comment on its Hong Kong salaries.
