Barclays halves shares awarded to top executives

Barclays Sign

Barclays almost halved the value of shares awarded to its top executives this year due to a share price fall, handing them stock worth $12.3m compared with $23.1m a year earlier.

Reuters reports that new Barclays chief executive Jes Staley got the biggest payout with shares worth just under $2.54m, made up of his role-based allowance and a buyout payment for shares forfeited from previous employers.

Barclays' annual payday, announced on Tuesday, covers various incentive schemes including role-based "allowances" from the first quarter of the year, the vesting of shares awarded in the last three years, and bonuses paid this year in shares.
