Wall Street CEOs don’t even crack the top 10 best paid CEOs in the country.
Larry Fink at BlackRock comes in at #12, earning over $22 million in 2009.
The next highest is Jay Fishman at travellers ($19.5 million) followed by John Stumpf at Wells Fargo ($18.7 million).
Jamie Dimon is the highest paid CEO of the bulge bracket banks – he was paid just over $15 million in 2009. He’s followed by Lloyd Blankfein, who earned just $8.25 million in 2009.
All in all it’s a very weak showing by Wall Street on the list of best-paid U.S. CEOs in 2009.
The best paying CEO jobs right now are in consumer services, technology, and health care – not finance.
