Bankers Accept That They Will ‘Never Be Loved’


‘Sure, we all know that things have to change and that firms have to align bonus payments with long-term performance,’ one banker told Here Is the City, ‘But let’s not hear all this nonsense about regaining the public’s trust; we never had the public’s trust in the first place, and thanks to the political rhetoric of the last two years, we’ll never be loved. And, let’s face it, given the choice, most of us would rather be hated and bonused up, than hated and poorly paid.’” [Here Is the City]
