UBS just released some dismal bonus pool numbers.

From Bloomberg:

The bonus pool, including pay deferred into future years, fell to 2.57 billion Swiss francs ($2.8 billion), from 4.25 billion francs in 2010, the Zurich-based bank said today. The pool at UBS’s investment bank is down 60 percent.

The firm's investment banking division head Carsten Kengeter volunteered to forgo a 2011 bonus, the report said.

This comes after the Swiss bank announced a massive $2.3 billion trading loss last year believed to be caused by a lone rogue trader in the firm's London offices.
