As a part of its series on global pay for bankers, Financial News has compiled a list of the top 10 highest paid female banking executives at banks around the world.
Topping the list is Mary Callahan Erdoes, chief executive of asset management for J.P. Morgan. Last year, she took home $15.4 million, not including her pension or other benefits; her base salary of $729,167 was bolstered by a $4.7 million bonus and additional stock-based compensation.
Second was Ina Drew, also of J.P. Morgan, where she serves as chief investment offer, whose salary and bonuses totaled $14 million. Other rainmakers were Ruth Porat, Morgan Stanley's chief financial officer, who brought home $8.8 million, Carrie Tolstedt, senior executive vice president of community banking for Wells Fargo, who made $8.6 million, and Ellen Alemany, head of RBS' Americas division, who was paid $7.4 million.
Of the list, six women work for U.S.-based firms, two for Canadian banks, and two are from institutions based in Europe. (Financial News)
