Citigroup CEO Michael Corbat took home more than $14 million last year, a 23% raise from 2012.
Corbat, who took the helm of Citi (Fortune 500) from Vikram Pandit in October 2012, earned a base salary of $1.5 million last year, a cash bonus of just over $5 million, as well as nearly $3.8 million in both deferred stock awards and shares tied to the bank's performance. ,
Most of his compensation package was already known. The bank disclosed late Thursday in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing that he had received the deferred shares.
Corbat's $14 million in pay is more than 20% higher than the $11.5 million he took home in 2012, when Corbat spent the first nine months of the year as head of Citi's operations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
JPMorgan Chase (Fortune 500) CEO , Jamie Dimon will be paid $20 million for last year, up 74% from his pay in 2012. That year, Dimon was docked due to the $6 billion loss attributed to a trader known as the London Whale. The bank gave Dimon the big raise for 2013 despite all the legal fees the bank faced.
Wall Street firms have clawed their way back from the depths of the financial crisis, and are much healthier now. Their stock prices have roared back since the market bottomed in 2009 and boards apparently are awarding their CEOs for that.
However, Citi's most recent quarterly earnings weren't as strong as analysts had hoped. The bank's fourth quarter profit and revenue missed Wall Street's expectations, as higher interest rates slowed its mortgage financing business and took a hit on bond trading.
