Page 1 of 21

Wish you were one of the world’s highest paid CEOs? As you may have already read on our most stressful jobs list, being a CEO is one of the most demanding professions out there. But in this case, work-related stress surely pays off, as this is one of the highest paid jobs around. We would like to present you with a list of the world’s 20 highest paid CEOs in 2013. The CEOs from the following companies, which range from coffee moguls and news empires to automobile magnates and financial institutions, will cash in a mind-blowing salary by the end of this year.

Some CEOs are also paid compensations, according to how well the company fares on the stock market. However, since predicting how a company’s shares will vary for an entire year is an almost impossible feat, we have chosen to rank our CEOs according to their net salary for 2013.

The CEO of Oracle Corporation (NASDAQ:ORCL), the computer technology corporation, Larry Ellison has the highest wages for 2013: a “modest” $96.2 million. And that does not even include benefits. At the other end of the spectrum we have Mr. Jeff Inmelt, CEO of General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) with an annual salary of “only” $20.5 million. His salary might be less than a third that of Larry Ellison, but we’re pretty sure he is not complaining.

Curious to see who else has made the list apart from Ellison and Inmelt? Let’s take a look at the countdown of the highest paid CEOs on the following pages:
