"This isn’t a year we would try and set records on compensation. I am mindful of external pressures over compensation. But it’s my duty to preserve this franchise" “The old partnership culture is still very much alive here” “We’ve not seen much opportunity for principal or merchant banking investments recently. We think there should be a much, much higher return for holding illiquid assets" “Absolutely, large firms should be allowed to fail”
