(June 10): The subject of remuneration has always been one of fascination. We are naturally curious about how much our friends, colleagues, boss and competitors are being paid.

Next week, The Edge Singapore will carry a similar article, listing the 40 highest-paid CEOs for companies listed on Bursa Malaysia and the Singapore Exchange.

Remuneration in absolute terms by itself is not very meaningful. Therefore, the study goes on to measure remuneration against several key metrics, including the company’s net profit, total staff costs, market capitalisation as well as total shareholder returns over the same period.
