Is Industrial and Commercial Bank of China Limited’s (HKG:1398) CEO Being Overpaid?
This report will, first, examine the CEO compensation levels in comparison to CEO compensation at other big companies. Pay mix tells us a lot about how a company functions versus the wider industry, and it’s no different in the case of Industrial and Commercial Bank of China. With a total shareholder return of 21% over three years, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China Limited shareholders would, in general, be reasonably content. But they probably wouldn’t be so happy as to think the CEO should be paid more than is normal, for companies around this size. Shu Gu receives relatively low remuneration compared to other large companies. But the company isn’t exactly firing on all cylinders, from my perspective. But on this analysis I see no issue with the CEO compensation. So you may want to check if insiders are buying Industrial and Commercial Bank of China shares with their own money (free access).
