The average CEO of an S&P/ASX 100 company has probably earned more since the start of 2020 than the average worker will earn for the whole year, based on Australian Council of Superannuation Investors figures. Qantas CEO Alan Joyce, Australia’s top-earning CEO in 2018, received as much as 281 workers earning the average wage. Bonuses, which are viewed as ‘at-risk’ pay, account for much of the large amounts that CEOs receive. However, ACSI CEO Louise Davidson notes that over 50 per cent of ASX 100 CEOs received over 70 per cent of their bonuses in the 2018 financial year, suggesting to her that so-called ‘at risk’ pay is "not very risky at all".
