10 THINGS ON WALL STREET

Hello! It's Dan DeFrancesco checking in from NYC.

Today we've got stories on Steve Cohen feeling bullish on his casino plans, VCs thoughts on what's next for crypto, and how activists on Wall Street are calling the shots at some of the biggest companies

But first, let's take a peek inside some pockets.

The Wall Street bull tempting suited hands with a one hundred dollar bill on a red background

1. Small banks with big comp.

Just because they're small doesn't mean they can't pay big. 

We've talked before about why boutique banks oftentimes rank higher among workers than their bulge-bracket peers.

There's the hands-on experience and the work-life balance, both which rate high among younger bankers.

But at the end of the day this is investment banking. And as much as bankers like to say their job isn't all about the money, it's kind of all about the money. 

Insider's Emmalyse Brownstein and Rachel DuRose pulled salary data from a variety of sources to get a sense of what type of base compensation analysts, associates, and vice presidents can expect to receive at nine boutique firms

This data doesn't include bonuses, which are typically a huge chunk of bankers' overall comp (although maybe not this year). But it's still fascinating to see how these smaller players stack up to bulge-bracket banks, where the going rate for base comp among first-year analysts is $110,000

So, for a young banker starting out, what's the better pick in the long run? 

Boutique bankers will say you can't put a price on face time with key executives and dealmaking experience that goes beyond just revising decks. Bulge-bracket bankers will say having a high-profile firm on your résumé opens up doors that boutique bankers aren't even aware of. 

Perhaps someone could build a model that assigns values to all these different factors and assesses the better pick?

Have it to me first thing tomorrow morning.

thx.
