Default Who is shortchanging you; IB firm or headhunters?

Hi. I came from a banking background.
I am progressing into my second job after graduation.

Access the following scenario and let me know what you think.

If a large renowned Investment Bank(IB) pays 6k/month minimally for associates for a particular middle office role. An recruitment agency linked you and the IB up.

Subsequently, you got an interview with the IB for that role. At the end of the interview, the IB asks for your expected salary. And you quote below market rate, (for eg. 4500).

Afterwards, you received an offer for 4500/month for the same role with an IB (contractual basis).

Who is shortchanging you. the headhunter or the IB?

Thanks in advance
