Wall Street's Highest Paid CEOs and IB Chiefs

by Derek Loosvelt | March 15, 2011

Yesterday it was revealed that, for his efforts in 2010, Deutsche Bank's head of corporate and investment banking, Anshu Jain, made $16.7 million -- which was about $4 million more than Deutsche Bank CEO Josef Ackermann made last year. 

A similar situation (in which a bank's IB chief made more than his CEO) was revealed a few weeks ago when BofA released its salary figures for 2010, noting that investment banking chief Thomas Montag earned a $15.2 million bonus while chief executive Brian Moynihan made about $9 million.

The reason these two IB heads made more than their bosses is simple: their units made a majority of their firms' profits (in 2010, Jain's unit accounted for $29 billion in net revenue, 73 percent of DB's total).

As for where these payouts stand versus other top executive suite earners last year, here's a sample of other big bankers' compensation in 2010:

Jamie Dimon, JPMorgan Chase CEO: $17.4 million

Bob Diamond, Barclays CEO: $16.5 million

Lloyd Blankfein, Goldman Sachs CEO: $12.6 million

Carsten Kengeter, UBS Investment Bank chief: $11 million (approx.)
