    Student loans are, but I would expect actual government stuff wouldn't, after all, SFE is merely a quango

    Because we want people who are competent, and willing to put in a decent amount of effort. We therefore have to compete with banks on wages for senior risk analysts insofar as we can (realistically most will earn more than £2m but this makes it a decent career twilight option). Go much lower and the people you end up filling the roles with see their work as basically charity, which isn't what you want for something like this.



    I'm not 100% certain either, I'd like to hear more if you have any more ideas on this point.
    I am sure we could recruit people for a lot less than £2m per annum. No other public-sector appointed post to my knowledge pays this.*

    The relevant comparison is not with public sector posts, but with banking, because that is the market we will be competing for employees in.

    I like this, apart from the £2m - no one should earn that much, it's ridiculous

    I agree, but the option is either that, or get incompetent people staffing probably the most important institution for the country's economic stability. The third option is imposing a maximum salary on the private sector but somehow I don't think that would pass...

    I'd go for the latter
