Lloyds Banking Group has defended the 6.3 million pound ($8.06 million) pay package awarded to chief executive Antonio Horta-Osorio, after criticism from politicians and investor trade bodies. Horta-Osorio's pay in 2018 has drawn harsh commentary, with particular focus on the generous pension perks that eclipsed those on offer to Lloyds' broader workforce. Addressing questions at the company's annual general meeting, Lloyds Chairman Norman Blackwell insisted executive awards were "fair" and justified given the bank's turnaround in recent years from the brink of insolvency to becoming one of Europe's most profitable lenders.
Lloyds Banking Group is braced for a potential shareholder revolt over senior executives' pay at its annual meeting on Thursday, after criticism by politicians and a string of similar rebellions at rival banks. The bank's CEO Antonio Horta-Osorio's 6.3 million-pound pay in 2018 has faced objections from investors, with particular focus on the generous pension perks that eclipse those on offer to Lloyds' broader workforce. Horta-Osorio, Britain's highest paid banking CEO, has already waived part of the bank's contributions to his pension pot this year, taking the annual payments to 33 percent of base salary from 46 percent previously.

Lloyds Banking Group has given up hope of a profit-boosting rise in interest rates before 2020, Britain's biggest mortgage lender said on Thursday, after surprise one-off costs led it to miss quarterly earnings forecasts despite robust underlying profits.

It has felt at times as if little has gone right for Standard Life and Aberdeen Asset Management since they announced in March 2017 that they were merging. There was also unhappiness that the enlarged business would have joint chief executives: Keith Skeoch from Standard Life and Martin Gilbert from Aberdeen. The combined Standard Life Aberdeen (SLA) suffered a net outflow of £32.9bn for 2017 as a whole, as investors pulled their money out, with a further £40.9bn going out of the door in 2018.
About a year ago, Lloyds announced it was pulling 109 billion pounds ($145 billion) of assets that SLA managed on behalf of Lloyds’s Scottish Widows unit, saying the 2017 merger of Standard Life and Aberdeen created a “material” competitor to the lender’s own insurance business.
