New figures from SEEK Learning show the banking and financial services industry is in the top three industries for percentage growth in salaries. The industry on a whole saw an average 3% salary increase over the past financial year.
Financial planners beat the industry average, with a 5% increase in salary from FY14 to FY15. The average planner is now bringing home $85,465 per year.
Stockbrokers and traders saw the biggest percentage increase, with salaries growing 8% from FY14 to FY15. But they were still narrowly pipped by planners for average salary, with stockbrokers bringing home an average $85,125 per annum.
Unsurprisingly, the upper echelons of management saw the heartiest salaries, with management, compliance & risk, corporate finance & investment banking and corporate & institutional and business banking bringing in more than six figures.
The credit industry saw the only decline in salary, falling 2% to an average $75,209.
Financial planners are a bit better off than last year, according to new salary figures.
