Dimon's (pic) annual pay is US$31.5 million

NEW YORK: JPMorgan Chase & Co Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon (pic) will not get a raise in his annual pay and will receive US$31.5 million for his work in 2020, the bank said on Thursday.

Dimon's total compensation will include the same annual base salary of $1.5 million and a performance-based incentive of $30 million, according to a regulatory filing.

The bank said directors based the pay decision on "the firm's strong performance" last year during the coronavirus pandemic and over the long term across business results, risk controls and conduct; client, customer and stakeholder focus; and teamwork and leadership.

The rationale provided by the board was similar to that offered for Dimon's compensation for 2019.

Under Dimon, who turns 65 in March, JPMorgan produced net income of $29.1 billion for 2020, down from $36.4 billion a year earlier, and a return on tangible common equity of 14%, down from 19%.

Profits at JPMorgan, the biggest U.S. bank by assets, and other banks were hurt by massive expense provisions for expected loan losses due to the pandemic. Low interest rates fostered by the Federal Reserve to support the economy also reduced lending margins.

Incentive compensation for Dimon and other top JPMorgan executives is largely composed of restricted stock instruments.

The bank also disclosed awards to other executives of restricted stock units, indicating their total compensation for 2020, including:

Gordon Smith, co-president and CEO of Consumer & Community Banking, $22.5 million, unchanged from the year before.

Daniel Pinto, co-president and CEO of the Corporate & Investment Bank, $24.5 million, up 9%.

Mary Erdoes, CEO for Asset & Wealth Management, $21 million, unchanged.

Marianne Lake, CEO of Consumer Lending, $15.7 million, up 2%.

Doug Petno, CEO of Commercial Banking, $13 million, unchanged.

Chief Financial Officer Jennifer Piepszak, $12 million, up 20% for her first full year as CFO.
