The chief executive officers (CEOs) of Singapore’s three largest local banks each saw their total take home pay rise in 2017.

Bank financial reports for last year reveal that the senior leaders earned more in 2017, after receiving lower bonuses in 2016 due to slow economic growth and operational challenges.

Piyush Gupta, chief of DBS Group Holdings, was again the highest paid among the three men, with a pay of S$10,264,789.
