But while getting a front-office investment banking role at Morgan Stanley in Singapore is likely to be a good career move, how much might the bank pay you once you come on board?
To give you an approximation of Morgan Stanley’s Singapore salaries in IB, we reviewed self-reported Glassdoor salary numbers for Morgan Stanley across the three seniority levels that the website has sufficient data for: analyst, associate, and vice president.
IB base pay at Morgan Stanley in Singapore obviously varies from banker to banker and according to individual performance, so the figures in the table below should be seen as approximate and general guidance. Moreover, we only reviewed Glassdoor’s high-range annual salaries (i.e. for top performers) at Morgan Stanley, because they better reflect the earnings of front-office investment bankers, who are typically paid more than their peers in other functions.
