UK dwells in the league that braces the top paid CEOs in Europe


UK: The UK inclines to have a headcount of the paramount paid CEOs in the whole of Europe, in line with a novel study released via Vlerick Business School

The study considered the twelve-monthly reports of all catalogued companies found in Belgium, followed by France, Germany, and The Netherlands – and those of the FTSE 100 in the UK.

Financial data was analysed discretely meant for two categories standing in the order as; companies with total assets of between €1 and €5 billion and companies with aggregate assets of in excess of €5 billion.

The average total compensation of a UK based CEO of a company with entire assets counting over €5 billion was found to be just over €4.700.000.The succeeding top paid CEOs were found in places as Germany at €3.100.00. In unlikeness, the lowest CEO compensation packages were brought into being in Belgium at €1.980.00 and last but not the least, France at €2.290.000, that is.


Essentially all the FTSE 100 enterprises (99 percent) still use cash bonuses to recompense their uppermost management but then again the value of these has plummeted 20 percent since 2010. In the UK, over the equivalent period, the value of all inducements such as bonuses, stock options and shares has fallen 35 percent; which may well elucidate as to why there was an 8 percent drop in the complete CEO pay.

All the same, there stood a 2 percent escalation in inducements as a share of the emoluments. In Belgium, collective incentives reason for 30 percent of a CEO’s remuneration, despite the fact that in Germany these constitute to nearly 60 percent.
