Bank of England governor Mark Carney collected a £150,000 pension package
Bank of England governor Mark Carney collected a £150,000 pension package worth close to a third of his £480,000 annual salary.
Bosses at commercial banks have already faced criticism for taking yearly pension payouts worth more than 25 per cent of salary – the level deemed acceptable in the City.
Carney’s jumped £2,000 on last year’s figure, and comes on top of £250,000 of benefits and perks, which includes a chunky housing allowance.
Carney’s final pension entitlement could exceed £40,000 a year when he leaves his position in January, after just six years at the head of the Bank.
