    Between 2014 and 2016, over 70% of the CEOs of Bel 20 and Bel Mid companies received a salary increase compared to a mere 46% in the smaller listed companies. The increase was the largest in the Bel 20 companies and was mainly due to variable remuneration. When the actual market data, the size, sector and profitability are taken into account, the German and English CEOs are overpaid. In stark contrast to that is the conclusion that CEOs in the best performing companies are paid relatively less and that the so-called pay ratio (the ratio of the remuneration for the CEO and the average employee) is also considerably lower in these companies.
