“Are people going to hold a charity benefit for Wall Street? That’s probably not going to happen — you’re not going to buy those raffle tickets,” said Alan Johnson, managing director of Johnson Associates, which designs executive-compensation programs for financial firms. “But business school graduates are not wanting to go into financial services. They’re wanting to go do something else. We’re below an equilibrium. If pay does not increase in certain parts of financial services, the industry will not get the right talent. It will not be as competitive.”
