Compensation for first-year IB analysts — SPACs remain hot — Blackstone’s real-estate game plan

Happy Friday! Congrats on making it through another week.

In what is surely not a sign the market is overhyped, Paul Ryan — yes, former House Speaker Paul Ryan — is reportedly planning to launch a special purpose acquisition company. As first reported by The Wall Street Journal, Ryan will serve as chairman and is looking to raise around $300 million for his SPAC, also known as a blank-check acquisition company.

The SPAC market is extremely hot right now. In fact, billionaire hedge fund manager Bill Ackman’s SPAC, Pershing Square Tontine Holdings, has been the largest US initial public offering of 2020 thus far, having raised $4 billion in July.

And while Ryan’s SPAC reportedly will have some variations on the traditional setup, you can find the full details on it here, the question remains what a life-long politician knows about SPACs.

Reed Alexander has the scoop on what you can expect to make as a first-year analyst at some of the largest investment banks, including Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, and Morgan Stanley, according to data compiled by Wall Street Oasis

While the average base salary is fairly standard across the bulge-bracket banks, it’s bonuses where there is some great variability. We included both the mean and median bonus at each bank, which also gives a sense for how they skew at the individual firms.
