Lloyds Banking Group pays 25 staff more than £1m


Lloyds Banking Group paid 25 of its bankers £1m or more in 2012 as its total bonus payouts hit £365m, according to the BBC.

This month Barclays revealed it has 458 employees receiving more than £1m, while HSBC has 204 and Royal Bank of Scotland has 94 staff.

Lloyds, which is 39 per cent owned by taxpayers, paid 20 of its bankers between £1m and £2m, while five earned between £2m and £3m.

Most bonuses were paid in shares with a £2,000 cap on the maximum cash payment.

Lloyds chief executive Antonio Horta-Osorio took home £1.5m in shares as his annual bonus which he will only sell if the Government sells one-third of its stake above 61p.

He also received a basic salary of £1.1m and long-term incentive of £1.5m, bringing his total remuneration to £3.7m.

Earlier this month, the bank reported losses of £570m and set aside an extra £3.5bn to deal with payment protection insurance misselling claims, bringing its total PPI pot to £6.8bn.

There is one comment at the moment, we would love to hear your opinion too.

  1. Is it me? If the bank makes losses of £570M, how can anyone get a bonus? I thought bonus’s were there as a reward for achievment. I suppose you could argue that to make a loss of £570M is a sort of achievement, but hardly a successful one, is it? Anyway just wondering
