FTSE chief executives

Bosses of Britain's leading firms will be paid more within three working days of 2020 than the average employees' annual wage, according to research.
FTSE 100 chief executives starting work on 2 January will by 17:00 GMT on Monday have earned above the average wage of £29,559, the report says.
The data was compiled by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and the High Pay Centre think tank.
Business Secretary Andrea Leadsom said the pay gap was "concerning".
The figures - based on the latest available data - suggests the average FTSE 100 chief was paid £3.46m in 2018, equivalent to £901.30 an hour.
The average full-time annual salary of £29,559 works out at £14.37 an hour, the report said, meaning that top bosses earned about 117 times their average employee.
The report said high pay will be a key issue in 2020 as this is the first year that publicly listed firms with more than 250 UK employees must disclose the ratio between chief executive pay and that of their average workers, and explain the reasons for their executive pay ratios.
