CEO salaries keep rising

The chief executives of Stockholm’s top listed companies saw their salaries rise by on average 17% last year despite the drop of around 1% in the OMX Stockholm top 30 index during 2015. The overall costs for CEO salaries increased from SKr 753 million to SKr 885 million.

The CEO pay rises should prompt a debate on alternative forms of remuneration, writes DI and points to Jörgen Lantto at biometric company Fingerprint Cards, whose share price has surged by over 1,500%, but who is the lowest paid CEO among the top thirty.
