Barclays CEO’s Pay Rises to as Much as 10.1 Million Pounds

Barclays Plc gave Robert Diamond as much as 10.1 million pounds ($16.5 million) in salary, bonuses and stock, making him the U.K.’s top-paid bank chief executive officer as the government presses lenders to curb remuneration.

Diamond was awarded a 6.5 million-pound bonus for 2010 and a further 2.25 million pounds depending on the lender’s performance, London-based Barclays said in a statement today. His base salary will rise to 1.35 million pounds from 250,000 pounds after he became CEO on Jan. 1.
