What the markets are doing on 12 April 2021

The median income of a CEO in the US kept climbing last year — and is on track to hit record highs, rising to USD 13.7 mn in 2020 from USD 12.8 mn in 2019, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing figures compiled from companies' regulatory filings. Of the 322 CEOs covered in the analysis, 206 saw a pay bump — some of which sit at the helm of firms that were battered (such as Exxon Mobil, Omnicom Group, and Norway’s Cruise Line Holdings).
