The chief executives of Europe’s 50 biggest public companies are starting to close the gap with their US counterparts in terms of total pay packages, a Hay Group study found. They also make more than them when only guaranteed salaries are considered.

The chiefs of the US’s 50 biggest companies by market capitalisation took a pay cut last year, bringing home a median package of €9.7m $11.2m in salary, bonus and long-term compensation, down from just under €13m the previous year, the consultancy found.


Purge of bonuses a boom time for advisers – Oct-31

Bonuses climb but sharp falls are forecast – Oct-18

High pay brings little reward – Oct-17

Boards braced for battle over pay packages – Oct-15

Rudd calls for crackdown on executive pay – Oct-15

United in rescue, divided in payback – Oct-14

European chief executive total compensation, by contrast, continued to grow to a median of €5.6m in this year’s survey, up from €5m last year.
