City Pay Associates manages the well-respected City Pay and Benefits surveys which have collated and summarised pay market practice for the finance sector in the City of London for many years.

We collect pay, incentive and benefits data annually from our clients, following actual review dates, and can therefore, continually update our pay databases.
