Which bankster’s CEO earned the most bank in 2013?

For the CEOs of the nation’s largest banks, the financial benefits of their position can be…well, how to put this…spectaculartastic? Stupenderful? Astoundalous? Something like that.

In fact, the financial benefits of being a bank CEO have only gotten better in the last few years, to the tune of a 32% increase from 2009-2013.

So just how good is it to be the CEO of a massive bank? One could say it makes their personal bank accounts too big to fail.

Need proof of that? Here’s the list of the top ten highest paid bank CEOs for 2013.

1. Wells Fargo’s John Stumpf – $19,320,409

2. Capital One’s Richard Fairbank – $18,294,525

3. Citigroup’s Michael Corbat – $17,558,119

4. FirstMerit’s Paul Greig – $16,411,240

5. State Street’s Joseph Hooley – $15,841,234

6. Bank of America’s Brian Moynihan – $13,139,357

  1. ​No wonder no judges will rule against Wells Fargo in the Bay Area. Stumpf lives in his five million dollar floors condo right next door. Very sad state of affairs in our courts.

  2. If this was another time I would say several players on that list would be swimming with the fishes.But as this is not another time they should def be stoned in the town square today or yesterday.For sure stoned with tiny pebbles over say two months.
