It shows they took home $13 million on average in 2013, 10.1 per cent more than in the previous year, more than compensating for a drop the year before and taking average pay levels back to slightly above 2011. The pay rises came in a year when banks paid record fines in the US for wrongdoing ranging from mis-selling mortgages to violating US sanctions. The 15 banks paid $48 billion in fines last year, up from $30 billion in 2012, according to an FT analysis.
John Cryan's restructuring may have kept Deutsche Bank out of the abyss, but investors are growing impatient with the bank's meager earnings – and with the boss himself. About a year ago, Deutsche Bank was on the ropes. Germany’s largest bank was reportedly on the hook for $14 billion (€11.8 billion) for questionable mortgage dealings in the United States – a titanic sum that would have sunk many a financial institution.
The European head of KKR, one of the world's largest private investors, warns that the good times can't last much longer. Johannes Huth says he faces a “dilemma” because, simply put, things are going rather too well. It might seem like an odd thing to say, but in the financial world where bubbles and busts are common, it makes perfect sense. “In my entire career here, I’ve never seen things running this smoothly for our 200 European engagements.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
