The article reports that compensation packages for experienced investment bankers in the U.S. are beset with confusing signals so far in 2005. The lack of clarity has to do with the package a firm needs to serve up to lure a more senior banker from a rival. There is a lot of confusion as to what the competitive landscape is, it seems that the market has not found its equilibrium yet. The stock market itself is helping drive the camp confusion, as it seems to be still in a transition period in which a recovery has been taking place, but has not yet been firmly established.
