throw cash make it rain

Bloomberg Markets Magazine has compiled a list of the top 50 financial CEOs in the U.S. ranked by their total pay packages in 2011.┬áLaura Marcinek and Nikolaj Gammeltoft, the authors of the piece, note that for these CEOs, compensation collectively rose by an average of 20.4 per cent in 2011 — a year when most big banks and brokerages saw their revenues, profits and stock prices plummet.”

A look at each CEO’s year-over-year pay increase compared with his respective firm’s share performance in 2011 reveals a wide disparity between pay and performance at the top of the financial industry in the United States.

Thanks to Bloomberg Markets for giving us permission to run their list.
