Bloomberg Markets Magazine has compiled a list of the top 10 financial CEOs in the U.S. ranked by how much value they provide their shareholders. Laura Marcinek and Nikolaj Gammeltoft, the authors of the piece, compiled the list by calculating the percentage point return on the stock of the CEO’s company for every $1 million in incentive pay the CEO received in 2011.

Great idea on their part, useful idea for ours.
