Lombard Says Bankers’ Salaries Will Need to Fall, HZ Reports

Thierry Lombard, a senior partner at Lombard Odier Darier Hentsch & Cie., expects bankers’ salaries to decline as stricter regulation hurts earnings, Handelszeitung reported, citing an interview.

Before the outbreak of the financial crisis, bankers were paid at least four times more than their equivalents in industry compared with parity in the 1970s when Lombard started working at Lombard Odier, he told the newspaper.

“This ratio isn’t justifiable,” Lombard said. “In future you won’t be able to pay that much anymore because of stricter rules and regulation will stop making this possible, in particular in investment banking.”
