Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, JP Morgan and Citi took the top five spots of a new survey by salary benchmarking website Emolument, while British-based banks HSBC and Barclays came eighth and 11th respectively. While there’s no official data on banker bonuses, surveys such as this one – based on the submissions of 189 front office directors working across 16 banks – help shed some light on the rewards.Goldman Sachs dishes out the biggest bonuses, but rival JP Morgan is the most generous when it comes to overall compensation Emolument said.And in most cases, banks that give the biggest bonuses are also the ones offering the best salaries.This is because bonuses increasingly tell us less about the size of a banker’s pay packet thanks to European Union legislation, which stops bonuses from being more than 100 per cent of base salary, or 200 per cent with shareholder approval.”Continuing a trend established in the last few years, we expect to see base salaries shoot up in order to circumvent bonus cap regulations, especially at director and managing director level where employees expect to see their total compensation increase substantially from previous titles,” Alice Leguay, co-founder and chief operating officer of Emolument, said.

In 2020, Cineworld‘s (LSE: CINE) share price sank to lows never before seen in the company’s 13-year stock market history. However, sentiment has since improved. The shares have soared from 24.3p eight months ago to 90.7p.Have I missed the boat? Or could there be a lot more to come? After all, the shares traded as high as 350p a few years ago.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Catastrophe riskWarren Buffett has said: “I’m always looking at the downside on something first. I mean, if you can’t lose money, you’re going to make money.” I think Buffett’s policy is a good one, and it’s one I try to follow.At Cineworld’s current share price, its market capitalisation is £1.2bn ($1.7bn). Set against this, its level of debt looks extremely high. Year-end net debt (excluding lease liabilities) stood at $4.3bn. That’s worrying enough for me, but it goes up to an eye-watering $8.3bn when lease liabilities are included.What would happen in the event of renewed restrictions or lockdowns, say because of a virus mutation that’s resistant to current vaccines? For a company with as much debt as Cineworld, the outcome for shareholders could be catastrophic.Can Cineworld trade out of trouble?Excluding a disaster scenario, Cineworld’s debt is still highly problematic for me as a potential buyer of the shares. In the pre-pandemic year of 2019, the company made an operating profit of $725m. But 78% of this ($568m) went to servicing its debt. Last year, due to an increase in borrowings of more than $1bn, the cost of servicing the debt rose to $787m.An operating profit of $725m in the last normal year’s business and interest payments currently running at $787m don’t look to me like a great starting point for trying to trade your way out of trouble. As such, I see a relatively high risk of a major financial restructuring and painful dilution for existing investors.Upside potential for Cineworld sharesCineworld may be able to avoid a restructuring, if it can slash its cost base and produce materially higher operating profits than the cost of servicing its debt. And the current reopening trajectory, with evidence of pent-up demand and a strong slate of delayed film releases, is helpful.One or two of my Motley Fool colleagues are positive on the stock. Indeed, Cineworld bulls can look back at that previous 350p share-price high and argue that the potential upside reward is worth the downside risk, and that I’m not too late to buy.HeadwindsHowever, even if Cineworld can avoid a financial restructuring, I think it could take some time to strengthen its balance sheet. And longer still to resume the dividends that were once a big draw for investors.Several headwinds won’t help Cineworld or its shares. There’s been a two-decade structural decline in cinema-going in the US (Cineworld’s largest market by far). Film studios are shortening the windows of theatrical exclusivity. And streaming services like Netflix are providing rising competition to the traditional way of consuming movies.My bottom line on Cineworld sharesAt the end of the day, Cineworld’s millstone of debt and the challenges it faces in servicing it, are a deal-breaker for me. I’ll revisit the company when it releases its half-year numbers, but for now, I’m avoiding the stock. Cineworld shares are up 273% in 8 months. Am I too late to buy?

Lévis, QC-based Desjardins Group announced a definitive agreement on Wednesday to purchase State Farm Canada, headquartered in Bloomington IL. The acquisition, expected to close January 2015, will include State Farm Canada’s property and casualty (P&C) insurance, life insurance, Canadian mutual fund, loan and living benefits companies. CI acquires US$5.1B San Diego-based RIA Desjardins will become the second largest P&C insurance provider in Canada upon the transactions conclusion. State Farm Canada’s 1,700 employees in Ontario, Alberta and New Brunswick will continue to work under the State Farm brand for an agreed license period. “This acquisition will allow Desjardins to develop a broader, multi-channel distribution network across the country, while continuing to meet the needs of State Farm’s Canadian client base,” said Monique Leroux, chair of the board, president and chief executive officer of Desjardins Group, in a statement. “At the same time, it will enhance our position in Canada by expanding our customer reach and achieving economies of scale.” As part of the transaction, State Farm agreed to invest $450 million in non-voting shares into Desjardins’ post-closing property and casualty insurance business. The deal also includes an investment by Paris-based Crédit Mutuel, a long-term partner of Desjardins, of $200 million, while Desjardin itself will allocate approximately $950 million towards the growth of the State Farm Canada companies.

Share this article and your comments with peers on social media IE Staff Facebook LinkedIn Twitter The struggle really is real for young investors The vast majority of Canadian parents are subsidizing the lifestyles of their adult children, and many may be jeopardizing their own retirements to do so, according to a poll by Toronto-based Royal Bank of Canada released Thursday.The 2019 RBC Family Finances Poll found that 96% of parents with adult children between the ages of 18 and 35 have supported those children financially in some capacity after they reached legal age, mostly for education costs (69%), living expenses (65%), and cellphone bills (58%). Nearly half of parents with children 30 to 35 are still providing support.

Its primary volume is clad in a hardwood rainscreen of Ipe, with secondary, zinc-lined openings that create entry, shade, shelter, and openings to the interior.
