RBA governor ahead of HKMA chief on pay scale

Glenn Stevens, the governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia, is one of the highest paid central bankers, after receiving a A$234,000 ($252,000) pay rise at the height of the global financial crisis.

On Thursday, Bloomberg reported that Australia's Reserve Bank Board agreed to raise Stevens' salary by A$234,000 in October 2008, and that in 2010 Stevens took home a total of A$1.05m, or $1.13m. The information was disclosed in a correspondence between the central bank and Treasurer's office.
