PJT Partners increased pay. And it's hiring.

PJT Partners already paid well. Now it pays more

It's not just Goldman Sachs that pays its junior bankers a small fortune. Boutique firm PJT Partners is also known for its generosity. And in today's first quarter results, it revealed that it hiked pay again.

PJT said today that it increased compensation spending by 20% year-on-year in the first quarter. This was occasioned by a similar 19% increase in revenues. Speaking to investors, PJT chief executive Paul Taubman said the firm's revenues are "decoupled" from the macro environment and are a reflection of strong relationships.

PJT raised salaries for its junior bankers in August last year. Following the raise, first year analysts in London went from £55k to £70k in salary alone, second years went from £60k to £80k and third years received £95k. First year London associates at PJT are now on salaries of  £110k ($150k).

PJT Partners employed 838 people at the end of last year. It spent $159m on compensation in the first three months of 2022, an average of $159k per head for three months' work.

Taubman said the firm is a "destination for talent" and will keep hiring as a "growth company." It's easier to hire now that there's no longer a COVID lockdown, he added: people can now "walk the halls" and see how special PJT is. It also helps that there are fewer deals being done now - potential hires are less entangled in deals.
