British bankers make one million despite the financial crisis

  • A report by an industry regulator showed that nearly 2,500 bankers in Britain make at least one million euros a year.

    After Britain, it was Germany that had the highest paid bankers in the world and France was at number three. Since London is a leading global financial center, bankers in Britain said that the figures reflected that same status. However, according to the critics, this is an example of the culture of 'risk and excess' which seems to be alive in the city.
