July 20 (Reuters) - German lender Deutsche Bank AG (DBKGn.DE) is raising the amount it pays investment banking analysts, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters late on Tuesday.

The bank will now pay first- and second-year analysts in its origination and advisory arms $100,000 and $105,000, respectively, which is a $15,000 increase from previous amounts, the person said, asking not to be identified.

U.S. analysts being promoted to the associate level midyear will see their pay rise by $25,000 to $150,000, the person said. Globally, analysts and those being promoted to associate will see their compensation increase by a similar percentage, the source added.

The pay adjustments will be shared during midyear compensation reviews, according to the source, who said that formal communication will take place on Aug. 4 but will be effective from July 1.
