• Finance jobs have a reputation for coming with massive salaries.
• But not all roles are created equal in the finance industry.
• LinkedIn looked through its salary data to figure out which finance jobs earn the most money.
Finance jobs are a great way to rake in the big bucks. That’s the stereotype, at least.
It is true that there’s money to be made in finance. But which positions really earn the most cash?
In order to find out, LinkedIn provided Business Insider with data collected through the site’s salary tool, which asks verified members to submit their salary and collects data on wages.
The jobs are all taken from the banking, capital markets, financial services, insurance, investment banking, investment management, venture capital, and private equity industries. C-suite titles were nixed from the search. LinkedIn calculated median base salaries, as well as median total salaries, which included additional compensation like annual bonuses, sign-on bonuses, stock options, and commission.
Unsurprisingly, most of the gigs that made the cut were senior roles. These 15 positions all make a median base salary of at least $100,000 a year. Bear in mind that the data is self-reported by users, so might be subject to some variation.[“Source-businessinsider”]
