FTSE bosses average more than a £1m a year survey says

More than a third of FTSE-100 chief executives are paid in excess of £1m a year a survey conducted by Hay Management Consultants shows.

The sort of pay package received by Barclays chief executive Matt Barrett is becoming the norm. Barrett earned £1.3m for three months&#39 work this year.

However, British executives are still paid considerably less than their American counterparts, with US FTSE-100 chief executives paid an average of £2m a year.

The Government is expected to introduce legislative proposals in October to curb directors’ pay and tie it more closely to company performance. Any such proposals are expected to meet with strong opposition.
