For the second straight year, Jamie Dimon was the highest-paid chief executive officer of a Wall Street bank, while Michael Corbat got the biggest raise for 2017.
Dimon, the JPMorgan Chase & Co. CEO, was paid $29.5 million, a 5.4% raise that was the smallest increase among the five biggest Wall Street banks.
Citigroup Inc. boosted Corbat’s pay 48% to $23 million.
Corbat, 57, oversaw a 25% jump in Citigroup’s shares last year that outpaced the 16% increase in the 24-company KBW Bank Index. Revenue climbed 2.3% from 2016 to $71.4 billion.
Dimon’s award was his second-biggest since taking the top job in 2005. JPMorgan posted record adjusted profit of $26.5 billion for 2017 and its shares rose 24%.
Goldman Sachs Group Inc. CEO Lloyd Blankfein, once the highest-paid CEO on Wall Street, lagged behind Dimon and Morgan Stanley’s James Gorman.
Blankfein’s award rose 9% to $24 million after Goldman posted a 30% plunge in fixed-income trading revenue for the year.
The firm’s market value dropped below Morgan Stanley’s last month, snapping a 4,105-day streak that started in 2006.
Morgan Stanley gave Gorman the second-biggest package for 2017, a $27 million award that was 20% higher than a year earlier.
