Equilar, which provides executive and board data, published its annual examination of chief executive compensation at the 100 biggest companies by revenue earlier this year. The list includes the best-compensated leaders in financial services.

By studying annual proxy statements filed by companies before March 31 — considered the halfway point in the annual proxy season — Equilar can offer an early peek at executive pay trends.

The findings in the new study reflect 2019 pay packages before the coronavirus outbreak. Equilar noted that several companies were adjusting their pay plans amid the crisis, or planned to do so.
