Goldman Sachs set to announce record $23billion bonus pot

Bankers' pay and bonuses is set to spark more anger this week after it was revealed that U.S. investment bank Goldman Sachs is set to pay out a record $23 billion to its employees.

Bumper third-quarter profits from the Wall Street giant last week should confirm that the average Goldman employee - including the 5,500 that work at its plush European HQ in Fleet Street - is on course to pocket around £500,000 for this year.

And as other U.S. banks prepare to release results this week, thousands more City bankers are hoping for confirmation that 2009 will be a fine year for bonuses.
