International Business Times reports that according to reports by the Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg, unnamed sources expect Goldman to keep its compensation pot the same as last year, which was $13bn, as stated in the bank's 2012 annual financial results.
Bankers were paid an average wage of $400,000 each last year, a rise of more than $30,000 a head on 2011. Goldman employs some 32,400 staff around the world.
For the first nine months this year, Goldman set aside $10.4bn for compensation, or 5% less than the same period a year earlier. Average compensation per employee reached $319,755.
