The CEO received an annual base salary of $1.5 million and a “performance-based variable incentive compensation” of $29.5 million, according to a Thursday Securities and Exchange Commission filing. Dimon will receive $5 million of that in cash, and $24.5 million in the form of “performance share units.”
“In determining Mr. Dimon's compensation, the independent members of the Board took into account the Firm's strong performance in 2018 and through the cycle, across four broad categories: Business Results; Risk, Controls & Conduct; Client/Customer/Stakeholder Focus; and Teamwork & Leadership,” the company said in the filing.
The news follows JPMorgan’s fourth-quarter earnings report, which missed Wall Street’s expectations at $1.98 per share and a profit of $7.07 billion, despite gains from higher interest rates and a bump within its loan sector.
