Across London senior investment bankers want to make life easier for their analysts. The Financial Times reports Deutsche Bank is monitoring more carefully its policy of one weekend off a month for its junior bankers.

UBS analysts will spend two-and-a-half years in their job against the traditional three to three-and-a-half-years, giving budding investment bankers a quicker route to higher pay and more “rewarding work,” according to the FT.
