Bonus rise on Wall St

WALL Street's bonus pool rose 15pc in 2013, fuelled by compensation deferred from prior years, according to estimates by New York state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli.

Employees took home an average bonus of $164,530 (€118,394) last year, the most since the 2008 financial crisis and the third highest on record, Mr DiNapoli said yesterday.
