    Report finds top 350 CEOs earned average of $15.5m in 2015, down 5.1% year on year, but much of it can be attributed to a drop in the value of stock options

    The top 350 US CEOs earned 5.1% less last year than in 2014, bringing home an average of just $15.5m, according to a report from the Economic Policy Institute.

    The dip in earnings had little to do with the increased attention to income inequality or discrepancy in pay between top executives and low-wage workers. Instead it’s all down to last year’s turbulent stock market.
