Morgan Stanley heightened James Gorman’s pay 22% to $33 million

Morgan Stanley Chief Executive James Gorman hopped past JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s Jamie Dimon to become the best-paid CEO of a central U.S. bank.

Morgan Stanley boosted Gorman’s pay 22% to $33 million for 2020 when the Wall Street bank posted its third consecutive year of record earnings. His pay encompasses $1.5 million in salary and a $7.88 million bonus, the firm said Friday in a filing. The enormous majority is in the structure of $23.6 million in long-term awards, which payout in shares and are somewhat tied to return-on-equity and shareholder-return targets.

The largest U.S. bank kept Dimon’s total compensation intact at $31.5 million for his work in 2020.

Gorman’s bank is fresh off another year of record earnings and held up two of the largest deals by a top Wall Street bank. The coexisting stock rise lifted its market value past $130 billion, or nearly 30% more than Goldman Sachs Group Inc.

The Morgan Stanley chief took a surprise pay cut for 2019 amidst the record revenues and profit. The determination was tied to cost-cutting undertakings and a round of layoffs.

In 2020, Morgan Stanley glued to its promise of not undertaking job cuts to console jittery staff pertained to the course of the pandemic. Some adversaries that gave rise to a similar pact shifted course. It became probable that the problems wrought by the virus were likely to outlive their alacrity to keep cost-cutting on hold.
