Banking salaries in the UK for those earning over a €1 million rose by more than a third last year, according to the European Banking Authority.
Average total pay for the top 2,714 highest paid UK bankers has grown from €1.4 million to €2 million.
Banking bonuses for these high-fliers have also risen to almost four times their salary: the banking regulator warns that this trend could lead to conflict with the new bonus cap.
This limit, which will come into force next year, will restrict bonuses to 100% of salaries, or 200% with shareholder approval. Read more on the Financial Times website.
