Blackstone chief stays at top of US financial services pay rankings in 2018

Stephen Schwarzman, Blackstone Group Inc.'s chairman, CEO and co-founder, remained atop the list of highest-paid CEOs among asset managers and other financial services firms in 2018, despite a 44.9% year-over-year decrease in total adjusted compensation.

Schwarzman took home $69.1 million, comprised entirely of cash compensation.

Henry Kravis and George Roberts, co-CEOs of KKR & Co., received the second-highest pay among CEOs at $56.5 million apiece.

GAMCO Investors Inc. Chairman and CEO Mario Gabelli, who had been one of the highest-paid CEOs, fell off the list after electing to waive compensation from March 1, 2018, to Dec. 31, 2018, to help GAMCO pay down debt. For the first two months of 2018, Gabelli earned $10.7 million.
