Financial analysts often think of themselves as the best-paid people in the world, but some analysts say that is not true.
They often get paid less than their colleagues in the same industry, and the pay gap can be as large as $100,000.
The median annual salary for an analyst is $88,200, according to the most recent data from PricewaterhouseCoopers.
That means they can expect to earn less than $10,000 a year.
Financial advisor, accountant and tax expert Andrew Linton, who advises companies and individuals on how to prepare for retirement, said he did not believe analysts had a salary cap.
“I think that’s an overstatement,” he said.
For most people, an analyst earns between $50,000 and $75,000, Mr Linton said.
For the average analyst, the average salary is between $60,000 to $80,000 per year, he said, but it depends on the size of their firm and the number of analysts.
He said the pay can vary between firms depending on their focus and how their analysts are paid.
Mr Linton also suggested that analysts were likely to have more flexibility and be paid less in some cases.
But he said the salary gap was “unfair”.
“There’s a fair amount of pay discrepancy in the industry,” Mr Litchonsaid.
It was likely for some people the gap between analysts’ salaries and their co-workers was even larger, Mr Wainstein said.
The salary gap in the financial services industry has grown in recent years, and many people have been asked by their employers for more salary.
The average pay for a bank analyst was $75.25 an hour in 2016-17, up from $69.10 in 2014-15.
In the financial planning industry, the median annual pay was $74,200 in 2016, up $2,200 from the previous year.
Financial planners had the lowest median annual earnings of any industry group, at $64,200.
The pay gap between an analyst and the average worker was much higher for other industries.
Some analysts earn more than $200,000 annually, while others earn $90,000 or more, according, according a 2016 report from the National Association of Financial Advisors.
Mr Wainsteinsays a large number of people are making money from their work, but they are not necessarily working for their companies.
A large proportion of analysts are also independent contractors, he says.
“We need to be honest with ourselves,” he told the ABC.
“If we’re talking about people making money off the backs of others, it’s really hard to see where the problem is.”
