Who earned £17.5m at Prudential last 12 months? It wasn’;t a member of the board, given that directors’; rewards are published on a named basis. Was it a fund manager, such as the lauded Tom Dobell at the M&G Recovery fund? A super-salesman of insurance in Asia (however £17.5m would be going some)? Or even a clever operative at the internal treasury operation?
The Pru is below no obligation to say. Large earners, if they are not on the board, get anonymity. Honest adequate. But it would surely aid shareholders’; comprehending of chance at the Pru to know which division is apparently so reliant on a superstar.
