Goldman Sachs weighs bonus cut of at least 40% at investment bank | Financial Times

The final bonus pools at Goldman are still being decided but the prospect of the deep cuts has fed fears that the bank could face high staff turnover in the new year, according to people familiar with the matter.

“I think we’re going to be worse than the Street,” one senior Goldman banker said.
