ACSI’s 17th annual survey of chief executive remuneration in ASX200 companies reveals that CEO pay is on the rise, with average realised pay outcomes reaching their highest level in four years. This uplift correlates with strong equity market performance.


In our 16th annual CEO Pay survey, we found that average fixed pay for ASX100 CEOs is the same as it was nine years ago, as investor pressure prompts company boards to exercise restraint. However, the persistence of bonus payments remains a concern for investors. 


This survey, now in its 15th edition, finds that fixed pay for CEOs in Australia's top companies is at its lowest in nearly a decade.  Bonuses, however, especially in the ASX100, are strikingly persistent.  93% of the ASX100 sample CEOs were awarded a bonus for their year's work - more than at any time since 2008.
